Boards of directors and Creativity : A study into the board's role in the creativity making process of the individual firm (English)
Abstract [sv]

Problemdiskussion: Mångtalet forskare har argumenterat för behovet av kreativitet i dagens problematiska organisationsklimat och med detta som grund har forskningen om kreativitet fått stor uppmärksamhet och utvecklats i nära alla tänkbara riktningar. Trots detta finns det ett område som fortfarande är mycket outforskat, nämligen det om kreativitet och styrelser. Då samband påvisats mellan styrelser och, de till kreativitet nära besläktade områdena, innovation samt intraprenörskap uppskattar vi emellertid att styrelsen har en betydelsefull roll också i skapandet av kreativitet.

Syfte: Vårt syfte är att skapa förståelse för styrelsens roll i skapandet av kreativitet i den enskilda organisationen.

Metod: Studien bygger på en flerfallsdesign och är genomförd med en kvalitativ forskningsstrategi och en abduktiv forskningsansats. Som undersökningsmetod användes kvalitativa intervjuer av semi-strukturerad karaktär.

Slutsats: För båda fallföretag tolkar vi att styrelsen spelar en betydelsefull och främjande roll i den kreativitetskapande processen i den enskilda organisationen. Den av styrelsens formulerade roller som är av störst vikt i denna process hör vidare till området för strategi.

Abstract [en]

Problematization: Due to the challenging environment organizations face today, the need for creativity has been raised by numerous researchers and thus the research of creativity has been developed in nearly all possible directions. In spite of this there is still one area that is critically unexplored, namely that of creativity and board of directors. Since connections have been found between boards, innovation and intrapreneurship, areas that are closely related to creativity, we however estimate that boards play an important role in the creativity making process as well.

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to create understanding of the board’s role in the creativity making process of the individual firm.

Method: Based on case studies from two organizations, the study is conducted with a qualitative research strategy and an abductive research approach. Qualitative interviews of semi-structured nature were used in order to gather empirical information.

Conclusion: According to our interpretation the board plays a significant and stimulating role in the creativity making process of both individual firms. Furthermore the board function that is of highest importance in this process belongs to the field of strategy.
