The mobility of creative individuals, trade secrets and restraints of trade

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Organizations provide the context, structures and complementary resources that allow creativity to thrive. Organizations also absorb and spread the uncertainty, costs and risks inherent in creative activity. But no matter how efficiently organizations are structured for creative activity, only individuals actually create new things. Individuals make connections, understand and overcome problems, have intuition and new ideas: no innovation in technology, no creativity in the arts can exist without a human mind at work. That is as inescapably true in the current age of organized, collaborative and systematic creative pursuit as it was in the age of heroic invention and creative genius
