Last Friday, the 4th OS ConJunction Students and Alumni Day took place at the Kaiser Leopold Saal at the University of Innsbruck. The theme for this year’s event was “Organizing Creativity and the Creativity of Organizing”.
After an introduction by Richard Weiskopf and Leonhard Dobusch, Birthe Soppe gave a talk on “How organizations make creativity valuable”. She provided insights from her empirical research on game development in the creative industry. She raised the topic of competing logics of market and creativity. This topic was revisited in a lively panel discussion, with five invited panelists, moderated by Katharina Zangerle.
It’s that time of the year again. The winter semester just started, the trees are turning from green to yellow, and, most importantly, the annual OS ConJunction Day is coming up! This year, it’s all about creativity and organizing. How is creativity organized? What role does creativity play in organizations? How do organizations make creativity valuable? These and many more questions will be explored in talks and a panel discussion. After the formal part, we look forward to nice conversations over food and drinks at Brennpunkt Coffee Competence.
