The issue of organizational creativity support is still insufficiently investigated. The research studies are fragmentary and do not present how to design organizational creativity support system. The main purpose of this paper is to propose a framework based on multi-agent approach for organizational creativity support. The idea of the study is an attempt to answer the following questions: (1) what is the issue of organizational creativity and its computer support, (2) what are the properties of multi-agent technology, (3) how to use multi-agent technology to build organizational creativity support system. The framework proposed consists of different agents that can independently acquire, monitor, analyze a variety of data that come from different, heterogeneous, dispersed information sources as well as to suggest new ideas concerning some products and services in organizations. The results of testing and verifying of the framework were presented on the example of one the price comparison websites.

Pomimo że tematyka dotycząca twórczości rozwija się od wielu lat, to zagadnienie wspomagania twórczości organizacyjnej z udziałem IT jest słabo rozpoznane. Badania w tym zakresie są nieliczne, rozproszone i nie ilustrują, jak projektować systemy wspomagania twórczości organizacyjnej. Głównym celem niniejszego artykułu jest zaproponowanie modelu wspomagania twórczości organizacyjnej opartego na podejściu wieloagentowym. W opracowaniu starano się odpowiedzieć na następujące pytania: (1) na czym polega istota twórczości organizacyjnej i jej komputerowe wspomaganie, (2) jakie są właściwości technologii wieloagentowej, (3) jak zastosować technologię wieloagentową do budowy systemu wspomagania twórczości organizacyjnej. Rezultatem przeprowadzonych badań jest model, który składa się z różnych agentów, którzy mogą niezależnie pozyskiwać, monitorować, analizować różnorodne informacje pochodzące z rozproszonych źródeł i na tej podstawie sugerować nowe pomysły, dotycząc produktów, usług, praktyk menedżerskich itp. Wyniki testowania modelu zostały zaprezentowane na przykładzie jednej z porównywarek cenowych.
