Mobilising Organisational Creativity and Innovation

Assignment: Report on Mobilising and Sustaining Creativity and Innovation in your work organisation and why this is important

Learning outcome 1: a systematic understanding and critical appreciation of theories and models of creativity, innovation and change management in the context of contemporary organisations.

Learning outcome 2: to synthesise individual and organisational theoretical perspectives to systematically promote the potential for creativity, innovation and change in practice.

In assignment 2, you must build on analysis and recommendations in the first assignment, critically analyse, evaluate and synthesise how creativity and innovation might be mobilised and sustained in the context of your work organisation. Assignment 2 is concerned specifically with the development and sustainability of an organisational climate and culture to promote and support creativity and innovation across the organisation, with regard to group and organisational levels of analysis.

1. You are required to critically evaluate and synthesise issues to demonstrate how creativity and innovation can be mobilised to support continuous innovation in the context of your workplace. Your analysis may include organisational climate, culture, creative leadership, creative Human Resource Management and actions that promote sustained creative and innovative behavior on group and organisational levels, which make a significant difference to overall productivity and performance.

You will need to demonstrate a systematic understanding and critical appreciation of the process of creativity and innovation drawing on C&I theories to support your evaluation and synthesis and explain why continuous C&I are important.

You will develop a summary plan to promote C&I in the context of your work organisation, supported by contemporary academic perspectives and include an in-depth literature review to evaluate critically alternative perspectives in order to draw meaningful conclusions and develop feasible recommendations.

You will present your analysis and plan in report format of approximately 2,600 words (+/- 10%), excluding tables, references and appendices.

In the unlikely event that your work organisation prevents adequate analysis, the UK Tutor can agree an alternative. You are not permitted to use another organisation or case study, unless approved in advance by the UK tutor. Use of an unapproved alternative organisation or case without prior approval will result in failure of the assignment
