The most effective innovation strategies focus on people and talent management practices, placing HR in a unique position to enhance (or hinder) innovative behaviors and practices within the organization. Human Resources and Organisation Development are in an excellent position to be key enablers of innovation and creative thinking in organizations, and therefore, have a responsibility to do so. However, in many organizations, the perception is that HR and OD are not fulfilling their role to the extent they could.
This course, HR’s Role in Innovation and Creative Thinking, has two parts. The first part gives you, as an HR or OD professional, a thorough understanding of the tools and techniques of creative thinking and how they fold into the tools, techniques, and practices of ideation management and innovation management. During the second part of the course, we will have a detailed discussion and review, with exercises, about how HR can enable innovation. We review concrete actions, processes, and OD elements required from HR to enable strong innovation in your organization. We close the course with a review of current global innovation trends and global HR trends related to innovation.
