ABSTRACT
While the conventional theories of creativity deal with personal traits of creative individuals, contemporary theories of creativity deal with the impact of social environment on creativity. According to conventional wisdom, creativity is something done by creative people. In contrast to the traditional approach, the componential theory of creativity assumes that all humans with normal capacities are able to produce creative work in some domain as long as social environment is appropriate. The social work environment can influence both the level and the frequency of creative behavior.In this research, we try to examine how the characteristics of the work environment (stimulants and obstacles) affect creativity at work. The data for this research were gathered from the managers of 126 firms selected from managers among the largest 500 firms of Turkey.
