Also, we have tested how individual creativity model differs depending on the level of task stress which naturally occurs. To test the research hypotheses, we have carried out the online survey of the employees working in IT companies and analyzed it with PLS(Partial Least Square) method.

Also, the member’s perception had different impact on individual creativity depending on the style of leadership.
