INTRODUCTION The study of creativity is historically rooted in the traditions of psychology (Guilford, 1950; Taylor, 1964), and is typically an effort to understand why some individuals are more creative than others. In general it has focused on cognitive and motivational processes rather than the social perspective (Jen, 2014: 111-112). As employee creativity is an important source of organizational innovation and competitive advantage (Amabile, 1988, 1996; Oldham and Cummings, 1996; Shalley, 1991; Zhou, 2003), organizations are increasingly seeking to foster individual creativity (Hirst et al., 2009: 280).
