Birmingham and Team Building
Whilst during the medieval period Birmingham was a market
town it grew to international prominence in the 18th century as the hub of the
Midlands Enlightenment and subsequent Industrial Revolution, which saw Birmingham develop at the leading edge of worldwide developments in science, technology and
economic organisation leading to the production of a range of innovations that
laid the groundwork of modern industrial society.
By 1791 Birmingham's distinctive economic profile, with many varied
and specialised highly-skilled trades being practised in small workshops,
encouraged high levels of creativity and innovation and supplied a resilient
and diverse economic base for Birmingham’s industrial prosperity that was to
last into the final quarter of the 20th century.
The consequence is that Birmingham has been the location for
some of the most important inventions and scientific breakthroughs including
gas lighting, custard powder, radiography, Brylcreem, the magnetron, first
cotton Roller Spinning machine and more recently the first hole-in-the-heart
operation in the UK, at Birmingham Children's Hospital.
