About this product
- DescriptionIn many modern ecomies, creativity, the essential prerequisite for invation, tends to be assumed or neglected while the catchphrase invation dominates the field of business as the key to national performance and competitiveness. Creativity and Invation in Business and Beyond illustrates the ways in which creativity spurs invation and invation enables creativity - t only in the realms of business and management, where the invation is regularly ackwledged and discussed, but throughout the social sciences. With contributions from experts in fields as far-flung as policy, history, ecomics, ecomic geography, sociology, law, psychology, social psychology and education, in addition to business and management, this volume explores the manifold avenues for creativity and invation at many levels including nation, region, city, institution, organisation, and team across a multitude of sectors and settings.
