Team Creativity in Highly Regulated Contexts: A Quantitative Investigation in Accounting Offices in Saudi Arabia

Auther : Abdullah Al-Beraidi
Tudor Rickards

This study examined quantitatively the creativity within two professional groupings found toward the more regulated end of the spectrum. The work was carried out in both the accounting and consulting domains within the Saudi Arabian financial services sector. The professionals within the less regulated domain (consulting) showed self-reports of more intrinsically motivated creative behaviors, transformational leadership, and a range of supportive team factors and less structural constraints. The findings suggested that such differences could not be explained by personal education/ aptitude variations, and could be a consequence of more support for creative behaviors, a significantly different form of transformational leadership, and also weaker structural constraints on creativity. The work draws attention to the wide-ranging impact of external regulation on creativity performance. In the context of investigating creativity within the highly regulated environments, the research established a link between the models of Kirton (1994) and Senge (1990), i.e. Kirton's adaptive creativity is a concept closely related to Senge's adaptive learning, while innovative creativity is closely linked to generative learning. This guides us to state that professionals in the more regulated environments can be professional and adaptive learners within the task and creative and generative learners around the task.
