Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroContributo a convegno


Much research effort has been devoted in order to understand the antecedents of the phenomenon of creativity. Previous findings identify, among others, transformational leadership, individual inspiration and social capital to be of importance. In the present research paper we propose a model where social capital can influence as a mediator the impact of the other two predictors on creativity. The novelty of the present research is that the domain of economic activity investigated is restricted to the information systems security one. The argument is that social capital with the domain of ISS enacts higher levels of creativity, needed in order to deal with unexpected events. Empirical data were gathered and a structural model testing pursued. Results of analysis fully confirm theoretical framework and hypotheses
