Description - When Sparks Fly by Dorothy Leonard-Barton

This book argues that group creativity is a process that can be learned, and outlines a five-step framework organizations can follow to manage and enhance creativity in groups of any size. Creativity and innovation are evergreen topics. Particularly in today's tough marketplace, companies in every industry are looking for ways to harness creativity and innovation to spur growth and enhance competitiveness. Differs from many books on creativity in that its focus is on how to manage group, rather than individual creativity. Refutes much conventional wisdom about where creativity comes from, particularly that creativity does not stem from the random genius of individuals. The authors reveal specific group configurations and strategies that can unleash the collective creativity of any team or group.
