Team Creativity through the lens of Team Diversity and Creative Collective Efficacy



This project works on an integrative model of team diversity and creative collective efficacy using both individual and collective explanatory mechanisms. Organizational innovation around the world depends on many factors, however, it always begins with the creative thinking ability of both individuals and teams to innovate and develop on an idea.

Both research scholars and innovation consulting firms have found that the key to being creatively motivated is that one must possess a sense of confidence toward one's capability for creative work. Generating these creative ideas involves moving beyond existing mental frameworks and this posits a challenge particularly for multinational teams because it requires integration and utilization of cultural values among members of different national backgrounds in order for team members to build confidence in their creative abilities as a collective entity.
