Abstract and Keywords

Teams are assumed to be good for creativity, yet, research in this arena remains limited. This chapter examines the definition of team creativity and reviews the literature using Rhodes’ Four-P’s framework: person(s), process, press, and product). They describe person(s) differences between the compositional and compilational approaches used to examine team creativity. Next, the chapter discusses how team creativity has been studied as a process and how other team processes affect creativity. For the press perspective, work suggesting that the environment (press) serves to moderate many of the relationships with team creativity is reviewed. Lastly for product, it is proposed that although creativity is often conceptualized as an outcome, more detailed consideration is needed at the team level. The chapter closes with a discussion of the importance of team creativity to entrepreneurship and a call to action for future scholars.

Keywords: team creativity, team creative processes, team creative outcomes, Four P’s, creativity
