The Center for Collaboration Science invites you to the Collaboration Lecture Series on Team Creativity and Innovation featuring Dr. Roni Reiter-Palmon. The event takes place Wednesday, Jan. 23 from 2:30 P.M. - 3:30 P.M. in the Community Engagement Center, room 127.
For the past two decades, creativity and innovation have been viewed by researchers as critical to organizational success and survival. Understanding the factors that facilitate or inhibit creativity and innovation at the individual level has been the focus of much of the research in the area. In recent years, research in organizational psychology and management has focused on understanding creativity and innovation in teams. However, while earlier work on teams and creativity has focused on the team as a context variable, and individual creativity as the outcome, more recent research emphasizes creativity as the outcome. The more recent attention to teams has occurred because many of the problems facing organizations are complex, and cannot be solved by a single individual, and these problems require creative and innovative solutions. In this presentation Dr. Reiter-Palmon will discuss our current knowledge and future research needed in relation to three important factors that influence team creativity and innovation: social processes, cognitive processes, and leadership.
