Chapter 25: Succeeding with capitalizing on creativity: an integrative framework
Looking across the chapters in this anthology one might recognize four recurring patterns deterministic of capitalizing on creative ideas at work. These four common threads are: (1) bottom-up micro-emergence; (2) top-down contextual influences; (3) leadership; and (4) cyclic and polar processes (see Table 25.1, and Table 25A.1 in the Appendix). In terms of bottom-up emergence processes, we observe that contributions in the book predominantly address micro-level innovation processes (Chapters 2, 3 and 4), how ideas emerge and evolve from individuals up into the teams. However, there are also attempts (Chapters 5, 6 and 7) to utilize novel developments in multi-level theorizing and methodology to understand idea capitalization across levels of analysis (from the individual to the team level).
