"Don't hire the most qualified, hire the craziest."- Jack Ma
Is there validity in this statement? What role do seemingly crazy, unorthodox, and imagi-native approaches play in business? Farsighted enterprises realize a degree of disruption in patterned thinking is crucial for success. In fact, Creativity is the #1 soft skill in demand this year according to LinkedIn. Why is finding and considering a novel approach to our challenges beneficial? Where do great ideas come from? How can we get out of our comfort zone and discover original ideas instead of just copying competi-tors? How do we foster creativity and innovation in the workplace? Why is an innovation program paramount for every enterprise?
During this session, we will discuss these questions and their answers. We will examine creativity as a soft skill and the significance of applying creativity to corporate innovation. We will explore local and global innovation success stories and what we can learn from them. We will also learn industry lingo and trusted practices to encourage both leadership and employees to think-outside-the box. Join us for this energetic discussion of the innovation revolution and how we all can play a part in it!
