Creativity Filter and Start-Ups to Resolve the Innovation Paradox
The literature on creativity and innovation traditionally focuses on how individuals and R&D teams generate and implement novel ideas and search for opportunities. It also highlights the role of skills, motivation and knowledge as a source of opportunities and innovation. As the gains from skills and knowledge are uncertain, the degree of creativity spillover could be an important consideration. To address this gap in the literature we examine the role of the creativity filter in the relationship between knowledge and innovation in the organization.
