Sammanfattning (abstract):
In this study it is shown that an effective knowledge management is paramount to a creative knowledge environment of R&D groups in cutting-edge fields like biotechnology. This is to a great extent a group leadership task. Moreover, group leaders emphasized how to organize for creativity, while members were more concerned about doing creative R&D. Both parties highlighted group climates as conducive to creative outputs. Theoretical starting points were taken in creativity seen as enhanced by the environment rather than by individual characteristics. Data were collected by open and oral interviews of thirty R&D groups (n=87), one leader and two members from each, in academic and industrial biotech R&D in Sweden which is a top ranked innovative nation. Data were analysed by content and categorized accordingly. Further research on creative micro environments should focus on leadership issues and knowledge management.
