Business schools spend a lot of time teaching students how to create value for their companies and their associated stakeholders. It is part of the Smith School’s vision to also teach students to create social value for themselves, their communities and their world.
Employee creativity can help organizations weather storms, survive downturns, out-innovate their competition and take advantage of unexpected opportunities. So it’s in a manager’s best interest to help his or her team be creative.
