Creativity and innovation have been viewed by researchers and practitioners as critical to organizational success and survival. In recent years, research in organizational psychology and management has focused on understanding creativity and innovation in teams. 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. Recent research in particular has focused on team creativity as an outcome and sought to understand how teams collaborate to solve problems creatively and introduce innovation, as well as the factors that facilitate and hinder those. The purpose of this edited book is to provide a state-of-the-art review of the major concepts and current research related to team creativity and innovation. The book has four different sections: (1) an introduction to team creativity and innovation, (2) team processes, (3) organizational and level issues, and (4) applications related to team creativity and innovation.
