Capacity Building Workshop Participative Leadership and Innovation Management in the Public Sector


How to remain organizationally ready and effective? Co-Creation, Collective Problem-Solving and Leadership Development

Global challenges such as climate change, migration, digitalisation and demographic change, as well as financial scarcity create pressures for innovation and adaptation. Meanwhile, innovation is often designed and managed from top-down in the public sector. This can limit the creative input for outcomes and diminish acceptance and ultimately the effectiveness of your organisation.
