Organising creative interaction: Spontaneous and routinised spheres of team creativity.

Nando Malmelin, Sari Virta

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review


The focus of this article is to develop theory and understanding
about organisational creativity as a communicative phenomenon,
especially from the viewpoint of creative interaction within teams.
Interaction is central to creative processes, yet research concerning
the subject has been scarce. Based on empirical analysis of a
media organisation using the diary method and grounded theory,
the article concentrates on understanding creative interaction as
communication practices in an organisational context. The article
contributes to the theory of creativity in organisations by introducing
the spontaneous and routinised spheres of team-level creative
interaction and by presenting a typology of six related
communication practices.
