This project was about leading the process of developing a department vision, understanding the current climate within a department and facilitating creative problem solving to work on action plans to improve that climate. The project commenced with the development of a department vision for the marketing team within my organization. This was completed with the help of a core vision team, who volunteered to be part of this process. The second major component of this project was about understanding the current creative climate within my department. It involved reviewing KEYs survey (Amabile, Conti, Coon, Lazenby & Herron, 1996), results, as well as a company lead qualitative piece of research. This information was used as background information for the creative problem solving workshop I ran with the core vision team on developing a set of action plans to improve the climate within the department and ultimately move closer to our desired vision.
