Description

This volume presents a distinctly multi-level perspective on creativity and innovation that considers individual-level, team-level, and firm-level factors. In illustrating these factors, this volume presents both theoretical and practical implications to guide researchers and practitioners alike in the continued study and advancement of creativity and innovation in organizations.

Not only do chapter authors discuss the abilities, personality, and motivational attributes that contribute to employee creativity, the impact of leadership and climate on creative performance in teams is also addressed. Subsequently, firm-level influences such as planning, learning, strategy, and professions that influence the success of creative and innovative efforts are examined.

With contributions from leading scholars around the globe, this book offers a comprehensive review of creativity and innovation to assist researchers and practitioners in their quests to understand and improve organizational creativity and innovation. This is an essential resource for scholars, researchers, or graduate students interested in creativity, innovation, and organizational behavior.

Reviews

"This excellent volume offers a much-needed multi-level perspective on creativity and innovation at work. Coverage ranges from individual level processes, abilities, and personality, to team climate and processes, to firm-level strategy, planning, structure, and capabilities. The volume examines a wide variety of topics yet is coherent in its emphasis on the importance of the broader context in which creative action and innovation takes place, and the dynamic processes that make creativity and innovation possible and successful. Together, the chapters provide an insightful and timely summary and integration of this rich literature. Highly recommended for scholars and professionals who wish to gain more insight into these important 21st century skills." — Bernard A. Nijstad, Professor of Organizational Behavior, University of Groningen, The Netherlands.

"Creativity and Innovation in Organizations is the go-to guide for anyone interested in understanding creative performance and innovation at work." - Ronald A. Beghetto, Editor, Journal of Creative Behavior.
