Creativity and Project Management: Why Should You Care?


Dear Members and Friends of the Project Management Group – Germany e.V.,

In cooperation with our partner, The Connecting DOT, we are pleased to present you our extra ordinary guestspeaker, Stephanie Barnes, whose job title as a Chief Chaos Organiser may tell you everything but makes you curious, for sure. Our webinar will be held in English, but your questions can also be raised up in German.

Creativity and Project Management: Why Should You Care?

Creativity, why it’s important now more than ever (hint: it helps build our sustainable leadership skills), and how it can be added it to projects and meetings in a simple, fun way.

In this webinar participants will learn why activating and re-learning our creativity is so important to our success now and in the future–technology isn’t the key to the future, tapping into our innate creativity is what will enable us to thrive. Our participants will experience 2-3 short activities which they can add to their meetings and projects to help their project teams do things differently in a world that is volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous.

Traditionally, organisations have focused on making work look like a traditional industrial assembly line — logical and specialised. However, in today’s digital age, work is not a production line, production lines don’t need curiosity or learning, they rely on workers to do their task as efficiently and effectively as possible.

In the digital age, work wants and needs curiosity and learning. Our work is context sensitive, and we need space and time to think and reflect, ask questions, and try things out. The things our work ants were educated out of us through production line thinking.

What we need is to reintroduce the things that have been forgotten: creativity and playfulness.

By reactivating these things, things we once instinctively knew, and infusing them into our work activities we are better able to adapt to an ever-evolving environment, and create organisations that are more innovative, flexible, engaged and sustainable.

Integrating art, artistic attitudes, and a creative practice into our work/processes creates a different way of working and builds our sustainable leadership skills. It enables the adoption of agile/flexible behaviours and culture change which in turn allows the digital transformation of our organisations, so that they are successful in our knowledge age future.
