Dynamic changes in the conditions for the economic and business activity which are currently taking place trigger the need for radical change in management, both in the area of aims and rules of managers´ operations and methods that they are using. If the managers are to transform their role and competencies and make revolution in management to adjust it to those new economic conditions, the challenge raise for the management education. Management educators need relevant innovative teaching methods to support this process. Descriptive methods, based around content should give more space to those giving the opportunity to develop critical thinking and inspiration. Looking for new methods of management development, specialists turned to IT technology, art, neuroscience and the humanities, which all give metaphors and analogies to create innovative modern management strategies and the development of management and leadership skills. Overall objectives of the presented material are twofold: first - to describe theoretical framework concerning existing theories for innovative teaching methodologies with the focus for the ideas of ‘multidisciplinary approach’ and the use of analogy as innovative method; second - to develop propositions for the practical applications and shaping effective education programs on the basis of executed test program.
