towards complex people in simple organizations

In my pursuit to better understand the mechanisms enhancing creativity on an organizational level, I was happy that Stefan Meisiek visited Business & Design Lab this week. Meisiek is Professor at the School of Economics and Management, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, however soon to be Associate Professor of Leadership at the Copenhagen Business School. At Wednesday’s lunch seminar, arranged in co-operation between Business & Design Lab and ADA, Meisiek spoke about his research on “Workarts” – i.e. about how it during the last few years have been an increase in art based initiatives in different organizations. From that, I particularly carry with me his description on how we are moving:

“From simple people in complex organizations
to complex people in simple organizations”
