  • Felix von Held


This chapter summarizes the key elements of this research to provide an overview and to draw implications for future studies. The research focuses on the expression of creativity in social network development as a central part of organizational learning, which is conceptualized in a factor model of collective creativity. To study this phenomenon a new research design was developed and verified as part of this work, combining methods of social network analysis with creativity studies. The design holds the potential to be applied to future research widening the possibilities for educational and creativity research. The research design centers on social networks in innovation processes in a largescale company. Hence, the results allow insights in the domain of innovation but also have potential for interpretations of organizational development in general.
