Panel: Leading Creative Teams

Leading Creativity

A panel discussion about getting the best out of creative teams

As the advancement of machine intelligence facilitates widespread automation of knowledge tasks globally, it is becoming more important than ever to distinguish the exclusively human competencies that the workforce need to gravitate towards, if they are to remain employable.

A key human competency that has not been mastered by AI yet is creativity.

There are plenty of people trying to make this process more efficient, but the results are experimentally rough and indicate that human creativity, is one skill that won’t be automated anytime soon. An example of this is the Sunspring project, which used AI to generate a full screenplay for a short science fiction film. Human actors filmed the script, and the result was, ahem… interesting. See for yourself…

So, at WORLDWEBFORUM we convene a panel to discuss creative teams, and the different forms of leadership that can be seen amongst the world’s most innovative companies.

What are the challenges of leading creative people? How can you draw a direct line between creativity and profitability? Which leadership styles bring out the best results?
