How can different management frameworks be applied to foster creativity in a workplace with union and non-union workers?

Term: Fall 2019
Department: Business School
Course: BADM 303 Industrial Relations
Instructor: Laurie Prange Martin
Staff contact: Karen Pighin (North Vancouver Recreation and Culture)

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.
