Illustrating the interdisciplinary implications for research on creativity development, this book focuses on the new concept of 'knowledge differences' that arise between people, organizations and various phenomena.
It describes how these key differences create boundaries knowledge, a dynamic process that accelerates innovation. Chapters offer interdisciplinary perspectives on the topic to stimulate knowledge convergence across dissimilar fields of research, including business studies, economics, psychology and the arts.
Following Arthur Koestler's theory of creativity, this insightful book shows how bisociation - the recognition of similarity in the collision of two distinct concepts - can be expressed through boundaries vision and boundaries knowledge, applying these twin concepts to the field of business and management.
Focusing on literature related to strategy theory and knowledge creation theory, the book presents a theoretical framework for applying boundaries knowledge and boundaries vision to dynamic capabilities and knowledge creation in business innovation. Pioneering new frameworks for innovation, this book offers key insights for students and researchers of creativity development across various business-related fields.
It will also benefit business leaders and managers, describing a key path to knowledge creation in professional environments.
