Abstract [en]

In the current fast paced and competitive environment organizations are existing in, it is crucial so be innovative and creative. This empirical research addresses how organizations can stimulate creativity and innovation by understanding underlying factors and mechanisms. The research sample consisted of seven open interviews from seven different firms which could be described as creative. In analysis of the empirical material a model called meaning concentration have been used. Results have been analysed with support of sociocultural theory. The findings suggest that time, a structured process, gaining new perspectives and experiences by constant input and an open communication are keys to support innovation. The study also indicates that creative organizations uses informal learning systematically as a strategy in projects and developing the co-workers craftsmanship. Informal learning is used to gain knowledge about customers, social arenas and the surrounding world. New perspectives are considered to be crucial in creating innovation. The underlying factors of creative processes found in the empirical material are being discussed and how it connects to a social context and group dynamics.

Abstract [sv]

I en föränderlig och konkurrensutsatt värld är det essentiellt att organisationer utvecklas. Den här studien syftade till att utforska hur organisationer kan stimulera kreativa processer och innovation, genom att förstå dess underliggande faktorer. Det insamlade materialet bestod av sju öppna intervjuer från sju olika kreativa organisationer. Empirin analyserades med hjälp av meningskoncentrering och ur ett sociokulturellt perspektiv. Resultatet visade att kreativa organisationer använder sig av informellt lärande som en medveten strategi i syfte att tillägna sig nya kunskaper. De nya kunskaperna om kunder, sociala arenor och omvärlden anses av organisationerna avgörande för att lyckas skapa kreativa produkter. Organisationerna skapade avsiktligt situationer och möten där delandet av nya perspektiv och associationer ledde till ny kunskap genom diskussioner och intryck. Organisationer är enligt resultatet beroende av att inhämta nya perspektiv och kunskaper för att lyckas med innovationsprocesser. De underliggande faktorerna i de kreativa processerna diskuteras med koppling till den sociala kontext organisationerna verkar inom.
