Abstract:

Annotation

Corporate Creativity introduces fresh, results-oriented thinking about how to manage creativity. Rich with detailed profiles of creative acts at all levels in companies around the world, it shows what corporations can do to make full use of their creative potential. After researching how creative acts actually happen in hundreds of companies, the authors identified the essential elements of corporate creativity. They show how companies can focus on those elements & turn their creativity from a hit-or-miss proposition to a strategy they can count on.

Annotation

Alan Robinson and Sam Stern have traveled all over the world investigating creative acts in organizations and discovered what companies can do to increase their creative performance. The book puts forward a radically new way to promote creativity within business settings and includes numerous success stories.
