Creativity is a key ingredient of organizational effectiveness, business innovation, and entrepreneurship. Yet there remain substantial gaps in the literature in terms of understanding the antecedents of creative achievement. This study investigated the effect of perfectionism, employee engagement, and entrepreneurial potential as predictors of creative achievement. As predicted, Structural Equation Modelling demonstrated that entrepreneurial potential was significantly and positively related to all creative achievement outcomes. The hypothesised negative relationship between perfectionism and creative achievement was not supported. Furthermore, no significant associations were found between employee engagement and creative achievement. Implications are discussed in terms of the importance of entrepreneurial potential as a determinant of creative achievements.
