Special SOF Program: A Crash Course on Creativity

Innovation often feels like a mystery. Whether we’re struggling to generate fresh ideas or staring at problems with no solutions in sight, the spark of inspiration often seems out of reach. In this interactive workshop Tina Seelig provides a set of approaches and tools that allows us to ramp up our own creative problem solving, and that of our teams and organizations.

Tina Seelig is Professor of the Practice in Stanford University’s Department of Management Science and Engineering, and is a faculty director of the Stanford Technology Ventures Program. She teaches courses in the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design (d.school) and leads three fellowship programs in the School of Engineering that are focused on creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship. Dr. Seelig earned her PhD in Neuroscience at Stanford Medical School, and has been a management consultant, entrepreneur, and author of 17 books, including Creativity Rules, inGenius, and What I Wish I Knew When I Was 20. She is the recipient of the Gordon Prize from the National Academy of Engineering, the Olympus Innovation Award, and the Silicon Valley Visionary Award.
