Kunstgrebs-innovator, Innovation, KEA – Copenhagen School of Design and Technology
Assignment: The ask consisted in developing an innovation project, which had as its aim to suggest solutions on how to involve students and employees in a change of culture that would boost the aesthetic study and learning environment at KEA. It included facilitating a series of processes and workshops, which took its starting point in Theory U, among students, the project group, teachers and the managerial staff.
‘Helga is an accomplished project manager. She owns a natural authority and has an eye for the aim in this project, which stretched over a period of three months. It is difficult to join an organization you have no knowledge of and create space to carry through projects known only to a few. However, with great communication skills and her professional skills, Helga combines the artistic and creative qualities with an understanding for planning, managing and implementation, which is characteristic for managers and consultants in postmodern organizations.
