It is imperative that business students today graduate with an awareness and appreciation for innovation, creativity, analysis, and planning at a level that is more advanced than previous generations. The strategic management course is considered the undergraduate capstone business class in AACSB schools for achieving this end. The course is traditionally taught in a case format combining content from strategy textbooks and lectures with class discussions of company histories and situations. Whi...

In this theoretical article, organizational adaptability is modeled as a four-stage creative problem-solving process, with each stage involving a different kind of cognitive activity. Individuals have different preferences for each stage and thus are said to have different creative problem-solving process “styles.” The Creative Problem Solving Profile (CPSP) assesses these styles and maps onto and interconnects directly with the four stages of this creative problem-solving process. Field researc...

Publisher Summary This chapter addresses the need for organizations to develop more creative ways of thinking and behaving to succeed in a turbulent world. Organizational Development (OD) is a broad, loosely defined field of practice and inquiry that espouses the noble goal of improving organizations and making them more effective. OD must be understood as an ongoing continuous change-making organizational creativity management and leadership process, not just a program of discrete interventions...

Creativity is a critical success factor in organizational effectiveness. Little research has been devoted to understanding the role that attitudes play in creativity. Most has been largely theoretical. Tangible creative results require skilled creative behaviors. Creative attitudes open the doors to such behaviors and can be deliberately developed and measured. Empirically supported models of the mechanisms by which specific attitudes directly contribute to and trigger creativity are provided. T...

Problem structuring heuristics and creative thinking techniques have been advanced as useful approaches for solving ill-structured problems. Unfortunately, little controlled experimentation has been done to test the effectiveness of these techniques. This paper describes an experiment in which the effects of training in the use of a problem-structuring heuristic and creative thinking on the quality and quantity of problem statements are investigated. The experiment illustrates that such training...

We argue that current concepts of knowledge management and organizational learning are, by themselves, limited in their ability to improve organizational effectiveness. We show how these concepts may be usefully integrated with organizational creativity and innovation within a single framework that combines the apprehension of knowledge with the creative utilization of such knowledge. Field research and experience are described showing how this framework has been applied to achieve measurable im...
