In this paper, we draw on evidence from a case study to explore how to enable organizational creativity within a centralised information system. We argue that, even if the project leaders were seeking to enable organizational creativity using a centralized system they overlooked organizational climate factors. To understand these issues, we used the componential creativity theory to explain the influence of creativity encouragements, resources and management practice) toward organizational creativity. We conclude by suggesting that the case described might be an example of the actions to avoid when an organization wants to enable its creativity within a centralized information system.
