Languages of publication
This article investigates the impact of organizational creativity on firm innovativeness. Building on work on creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship, I hypothesise, that corporate entrepreneurship mediates the relationship between organizational creativity and firm innovativeness. Using date from 185 small-and-medium size Polish firms, the study shows empirical support for my theoretical framework. The paper thus contributes to theory of how organizational creativity influence firm innovativeness in corporate entrepreneurship context. I discuss the implications of these finding for further organizational creativity research in organizations.
