Event description

Description

As part of our ongoing commitment to supporting the Creative Sector, our partner Staffordshire University has developed a series of diverse talks, sessions and practical workshops that support the exploration of small and big challenges facing the creative sector.

This unique series of events will be of interest to micro-cultural producers and artists, small and medium creative businesses, social enterprises and individuals interested in the potential of creative placemaking in Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire. Research informed events by national and international experts will have a local focus, a local relevance and hopefully a local impact

The first event in this series is…

Putting the muse into business: the importance of the creative perspective in organisational change

Expert:
Sandi Kirkham

Leading successful organisational change continues to challenge business and industry leaders, but many recommended approaches focus on functional and operational aspects, or on technological change, with little attention paid to accommodating human creativity. A socio-technical approach may be more appropriate for the creative industries.

This talk will demonstrate how one such approach, the soft systems methodology, could be used to align organisational change more closely to business environments which are driven by artistic creativity and innovation.


Booking is advised for all events


Events are focused on the Creative Sector but are open to any businesses or interested parties operating in Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire
