Innovation and Creativity.
This document contains four papers from a symposium on innovation and creativity and their relationship to human resource development (HRD). "Intrapreneurial Programs and Their Impact on Sales, Profit, and Return to Investors" (Melissa H. Marcus, Dennis G. Tesolowski, Clinton H. Isbell) reports on a study in which 100 of 217 randomly selected Fortune 500 companies answered surveys examining intrapreneurship in their organizations and its impact on sales, profit, and return to investors. In "The Influence of Curiosity on Various Dimensions of Workplace Job Performance" (Thomas G. Reio, Jr.), a study is described that analyzed the results obtained when 233 subjects took 6 tests designed to show whether curiosity influences socialization-related learning and/or job performance. In"Organizational Innovation and Human Resource Development: A Critique" (Richard J. Torraco), organizational innovation is examined from the perspectives of HRD and management research and critical science research is used to examine educators' and managers' underlying values and goals with respect to innovation. "Leaders Behaving Badly: How to Block Innovation in Organizations" (Darlene F. Russ-Eft) discusses a study of leadership and corporate creativity in which 1,871 critical incidents describing leadership behaviors were gathered from 761 managers and nonmanagers representing 469 U.S. and Canadian organizations.
