read my dissertation...

Innovation is driven neither by processes nor by any other management system, but by people’s creativity. Only the new and at the same time useful ideas of individuals and teams will lead organizations to new frontiers, improved competitiveness and show a better world.

Against this background, my dissertation offers an introduction to the fascinating field of creativity and especially team creativity. Based on six scientific studies on topics such as design thinking, creative leadership, new work, trust and attracting creative talent, this book provides implications for both scientists and corporate decision makers.
