Linking Individual Creativity to Organizational Innovation
Litchfield, Robert C.; Ford, Cameron M.; Gentry, Richard J.
Journal of Creative Behavior, v49 n4 p279-294 Dec 2015
We draw on 146 employee-co-worker-supervisor triads from 146 organizations to examine the role of individual perspective-taking and team creative environment in the association between individual creativity and organizational innovation. Adopting an interactionist perspective, we find that the link between individual creativity and organizational innovation is most clearly strengthened when individual perspective-taking and team creative environment are both high. Neither individual perspective-taking nor team creative environment alone moderated the relationship between creativity and innovation.
