A Multilevel Model of Collaboration and Creativity Chapter uri icon


  • This chapter provides a framework for making sense of multilevel collaboration for enabling creative knowledge work. The work environment can be deliberately designed, but it must allow for emergent properties as the flow of information creates changes in the team members, the process, the structure, and the outcomes. The interrelationships that provide the channels for the flow represent a complex system subject to both enhancing and constraining influences from multiple sources. We examine network structure, learning, and complexity as key facets of that complex system that generate intangible forms of capital that fuel the creative work.
