Study II is the central social network study of the research project. This research extends existing approaches by looking at the expression of creativity in social network development. The research design develops social network indicators using surveys at three time-points and relates them to indicators for creativity derived from Study I, as well as actor-level factors. Recently, similar but static designs have been used to successfully measure relations between network centrality and idea quality at a fixed point in time. It is anticipated that the results will generate new insights and validate the method for future research. The research design aims to empirically identify the expression of creativity in the network dynamics. The effect of creativity is conceptualized in the factor model of collective creativity (see section 2.3.3).
