IFKAD 2013
"Smart Growth: Organizations, Cities and Communities"
12-14 June 2013
Zagreb, Croatia

In today's business landscape the creation of sustainable value and wealth appears more and more related to the capacity of shaping smart organizations and communities. Increasingly the concept of 'smart growth' is becoming a key issue in the strategic agenda of both business organizations and public authorities. Creating and evolving towards smart, sustainable and inclusive organizations and communities emerge as a key-lever to activate and support development paths in the 21st century. This is the focus of the European Union's Europe 2020 strategy and US Smart Growth America programme.
The aim of the 8th IFKAD was to explore the relevance of the knowledge and intellectual capital management for supporting business organizations as well as regional and urban systems to evolve and become smarter.

"The value, connections and interventions between creativity and business"
12 March 2012
The British Library, London, United Kingdom

IBM's 2010 Global CEO Study found that of 1500 CEOs surveyed, the majority believe the key to navigating today's volatile, uncertain and increasingly complex business environment is creativity. The ability to instil creativity throughout an organisation was rated as more crucial than rigor, management, discipline, integrity or even vision as a means to future success.
This one day conference at The British Library will explore whether this is actually the case.


"The Arts as the Engine for Change and Growth"
1-2 December 2011, Matera -Italy

The arts can represent a 'revolution' in business, providing tools to manage organizational aesthetic experiences and properties with a positive impact on the development of people and infrastructures of the organizations.
The central idea of the Forum is to share the experiences and the benefits that organizations can achieve by absorbing the arts in their strategies, working mechanisms and management systems.

L'Arts2Innovation Forum intende esplorare i legami profondi, sebbene invisibili, che legano le arti al cambiamento e all'innovazione dei sistemi organizzativi sia di impresa che dei territori. Il Forum ha la finalità di analizzare come le arti possono guidare le micro e macro organizzazioni del XXI secolo a rispondere alle sfide dell'attuale sempre più complesso scenario competitivo. Esso si colloca nell'ambito delle attività internazionali svolte dall'Arts4Management Lab, coordinato dal Prof. Giovanni Schiuma, volte a definire approcci e strumenti basati sull'impiego dell'arte per lo sviluppo strategico e sostenibile dei sistemi organizzativi. Il Forum, alla sua prima edizione, intende rappresentare un evento per comprendere come l'applicazione gestionale delle arti nei modelli di business delle organizzazioni possono sostenere i processi di innovazione, contribuire al raggiungimento di prestazioni di business superiori, e guidare le dinamiche di creazione di valore sostenibile.
