Preface [Page xi] The rapid rate of technological development has led to an increase in the pace of change, and globalization and deregulation have led to increased competition. To survive, organizations need to be continuously creative and innovative, especially in high wage economies.
This has led to talk of the entrepreneurial society and increased interest in ways of developing and sustaining creativity and innovation at work.
We now have a better idea of how creativity emerges in organizations and a more developed idea of the principles that lay behind creative management than when the first edition of this book was published fifteen years ago.
This edition is divided into six parts — creativity, cognition, style, culture, development and perception. The contributors include many of the most prominent researchers in the fields of creative management and development. The first part of the book, on creativity and cognition, charts the shift to a more systemic view of creativity and the greater attention now paid to the role of tacit knowledge.
The middle sections, on style and culture, elaborate on the way in which cognitive style and personality type affect how we set about problem-solving, decisionmaking and change, and the different kinds of culture organizations need to encourage creativity.
The last part discusses ways of developing in a sustainable manner, that take account of our own and the planet's well-being. In terms of creativity Section A two key changes in our understanding are the increased emphasis now placed on the role of intrinsic motivation and the importance of the social field or community of practice in which the endeavour arises.
Csikszentmihalyi has addressed how creativity emerges from a social field. Amabile has drawn attention to the key role of intrinsic motivation in creative endeavour. West and Sacramento draw together research on the impact of team tasks, group composition, organizational context and team processes on team innovation.
Our understanding of human cognition Section B has been revolutionized in the last twenty years, in particular our understanding about the importance of unconscious information processing and the limitations of rational thought. Claxton summarizes recent findings on the key role of implicit learning, intuition and tacit knowledge in creativity, thinking and know-how.
Nonaka and Takeuchi illustrate the important role of tacit knowledge in innovation and knowledge creation and point out the greater extent to which this is recognized in Eastern organizations compared to their Western counterparts.
Sparrow discusses the neglected role of emotion and imagery in cognition and their relationship to creativity.
Hampson provides a brief overview of some key dimensions on which individuals differ. Kirton expounds upon the implications of a natural preference for adaption as opposed to innovation and the consequence for problem-solving, creativity decision-making and change management style.
Goleman argues that emotional intelligence is a key factor in differentiating the good from the bad leader. Culture Section D can have a major impact on creativity in organizations. Generally an open climate is associated with creative organizations but Ekvall argues that different types of people and tasks need different sorts of climate to bring out the creativity appropriate for the task.
Handy argues that the changed business environment necessitates a new relationship between management and workers, one he likens to the idea of citizenship. He advocates more workplace democracy as a means of building trust. Semler describes his experience of transforming a conservative traditional organization into an entrepreneurial self-organizing network of loosely related businesses.
Development Section E is increasingly important as knowledge changes with increasing rapidity and staff become more empowered. Henry discusses the relationship between development, creativity and well-being. Argyris explains the importance of walking the talk in change programmes and illustrates how defensive behaviour can get in the way.The training mixed theoretical study with practical examples from EEF’s expert trainers and consultants, providing their own practical knowledge and real-life examples, so delegates were able to embed the learning and develop their management skills accordingly.
We should all maintain a hearty skepticism about employee engagement. While it is true that engaged employees contribute more and more willingly to an organization, the contributions of the employee are rarely if ever matched by compensation from the organization.
