Description

CLEAR IDEAS for Innovation: How to be Practically Creative at Work
An SME innovation development programme.

Overview
Many innovations fail to be implemented by SMEs because of poor business planning, failure to understand the target market’s needs, lack of creative solutions, and poor implementation strategies. To address these problems, this two-day CLEAR IDEAS training programme has been designed for anyone working in an SME who wants to spark creative thinking and accelerate implementation of innovation. The programme will also offer an opportunity for networking with other SMEs, in both formal and informal settings, to share challenges and learn to collaborate more effectively.

Main Facilitator
Dr Kamal Birdi - Award-winning work psychologist and developer of CLEAR IDEAS
