Languages of publication



Celem artykułu jest zidentyfikowanie zależności pomiędzy twórczością organizacyjną, technologią informacyjną i efektywnością organizacyjną. Realizacja tak sformułowanego celu badawczego wymagała przeprowadzenia rozważań dotyczących przede wszystkim cyfrowej strategii biznesu jako źródła efektywności organizacyjnej oraz dynamicznych zdolności organizacji w kontekście twórczości organizacyjnej i IT. To z kolei dało asumpt do zaproponowania konceptualnego modelu wspomagania twórczości organizacyjnej z udziałem IT. W artykule zapoczątkowujemy dyskusję naukową na temat celowości oraz możliwości komputerowego wspomagania twórczości organizacyjnej.
