Systèmes d'Information et Management


The present study aims to illustrate problems associated with enabling organizational creativity through a centralized information system (IS). A creativity model based on the componential creativity theory was adapted from organization theory and was used to develop propositions regarding organizational climate factors that should be avoided when using a centralized IS to foster organizational creativity. The present study offers a useful case study to help organizations understand actions to be avoided when seeking to enhance organizational creativity via the adoption of a centralized IS.
