Continuum and the Center for Creative Leadership Host Webinar Titled, "Yes You Can! Innovating Despite Constraints"

Free Webinar Focuses on the Path to Organizational Creativity

WEST NEWTON, MA--(Marketwire - December 1, 2009) -

WHAT: Leaders charged with developing innovative solutions to opportunities often feel constrained by organizational processes, lack of resources, top leadership support or a myriad of other forces. These obstacles to innovation can be overcome by incorporating proven design thinking and strategic leadership principles to the innovation process.

In this interactive webinar, participants will explore the six basic principles of innovation -- paying attention, personalizing, imaging, serious play, collaborative inquiry and crafting -- and discover how to apply these principles to innovate within the constraints of any organization.

Journalists will be particularly interested in the unique insights into key innovation challenges that business leaders face, and will have the opportunity to learn more about tools and techniques being used to address these challenges successfully.

Join this webinar to hear more about:

--  Uncovering insights to inspire innovative ideas
--  Reframing constraints to enable teams to be innovative
--  Testing ideas in low cost, low risk ways
--  Demonstrating and selling ideas to others in your organization

WHO: Dan Buchner, Vice President of Organizational Innovation for Continuum David Magellan Horth, Senior Enterprise Associate at the Center for Creative Leadership, will moderate the webinar.
