Often it can be challenging to encourage creativity and innovation in complex work environments. Students will create or select a mixed union and non-union workplace and develop a management plan that applies a specific management framework to enhance creativity in the workplace. This project will generate creativity-enhancing ideas that can be used by managers in North Vancouver Recreation and Culture, the City of North Vancouver, and other institutions.
