This chapter reports on a study that showed how followers in academic and industrial R & D groups perceived when and how group leaders stimulated their creativity as well as why they this was believed to be creative. A modified version of the critical incident technique was used in interviews with followers to collect creative incidents. Data were subject to a content analysis. The procedure resulted in six situational, six behavioral and six reason categories. The highest ranked categories according to frequency of behavioral incidents dealt with how leaders provided expertise. This was typically done in situations of research meetings and supervision. The most frequent reasons were attributed to the advancement of research. University and industry respondents to a great extent reported similar incidents, but a few differences were found. Leader behavior when stimulating creativity in R & D groups is discussed. Finally, limitations, further research and implications of the study are suggested.

In this volume, the editors and contributors examine what is known about the effective leadership of creative efforts with respect to key functions performed by the leaders of creative efforts, the models used to explain the leadership of creative efforts, and the domains, areas, in which we see leadership of creative efforts. This chapter provides an overview of the nature and significance of the topic of this volume, the leadership of creative efforts, and the conclusions emerging from the various chapters included in this volume. Directions for future research are discussed.
