Entrepreneurship and Creativity BLD201

Introduction

The unit does not try to 'teach' creativity, but to unlock whatever creative capacity each individual brings to it to the identification of opportunities for the commercialisation of innovation.  The unit includes: an understanding of creative styles and identifying a creative learning preference; understanding the differences between lateral and sequential thought processes; exploring methods of creative thought; and practice in the use of tools that encourage creative thought.
