Includes exercise and debrief with theoretical background.

The second day Dr Hyun-Jung Lee will focus on the Cultural Diversity. As the world is becoming increasingly interconnected, cross-cultural knowledge, skills and capabilities are now required to individuals at all levels. Our day starts by examining the different thinking style that might provide obstacles for understanding each other of different cultural background. We will then go deeper in investigating what my own constraints of cross-cultural understanding and how to develop cultural intelligence. This is an intellectual and experiential forum for developing inter-cultural knowledge and skills, and involves the study of cross-cultural management theories and practices in the context of multicultural and international business environment.

The third day, Dr Nadia Millington will focus on Social Innovation. The day starts with exploring the concepts of social entrepreneurship, intrapreneurship and innovative business solutions to GDI challenges globally. We will then explore, design thinking principles of innovative problem solving and you will be guided through an iterative design process to solve a social problem, culminating in a short pitch of the solutions at the end of the exercise. A key benefit of this course for participants will be the opportunity to discover and build their understanding of design thinking as a means of seeking an effective, human-centred focus to creative problem solving.
