Theoretical Background and Current Research
The expression of creativity in social structures and innovative forms of organization, while increasingly at the forefront of research (Choi & Thompson, 2005), are still widely unexplored. Three important fields of research – into creativity, organizational learning, and social networks – converge here (see chapter 1, Figure 1). This chapter outlines the state of research and links relevant theories in the three domains in order to develop a conceptual model capable of assessing creativity in social network development. This new perspective will enable the exploration of creativity in the dynamics of organizational social structures.
