Creative Industries Seminar: Putting the Muse into Creative Business

In response to the launch of the Creative Industries Sector Deal, our partner Staffordshire University have developed a series of diverse talks, sessions and practical workshops that support the exploration of current challenges facing the creative sector.

This unique series of free events will be of interest to artists, small and medium sized creative businesses, social enterprises and individuals interested in the potential of creative placemaking in Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire. 


The FIRST event in this series is... Putting the muse into business: The importance of the creative perspective in organisational change by 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.
