THE INFLUENCE OF LEADERSHIP AND BOUNDARYLESS WORK ON CREATIVITY : A study of advertising agencies and schools of art on compulsory level (English)
Abstract [sv]

Sammanfattning

Studien undersökte hur ledarskap och gränslöshet i arbetsförhållanden påverkade kreativiteten på fem svenska reklambyråer respektive fem svenska kulturskolor. Deltagarna angav i vilken utsträckning 61 påståenden stämde med deras upplevelse av gränslöshet rörande arbetet respektive sin chefs ledarbeteenden. Ledarbeteenden togs upp som, baserat på tidigare forskning, gynnar kreativitet. Arbetsplatsens kreativitet självskattades. Två frågor med öppna svar belyste faktorer som påverkat kreativiteten positivt respektive negativt. Statistisk analys visade positiv korrelation mellan ledarskap och kreativitet, ingen korrelation mellan gränslöshet och kreativitet. De öppna svaren analyserades kvalitativt vilket belyste gränslöshetens inverkan både positivt och negativt på kreativitet samt samverkan med ledarskapet. Sambandet åskådliggjordes i ”Gränslöshet-Strukturmodellen” som introduceras i studien. Resultatet bidrar till djupare förståelse för gränslöshetens inverkan på kreativitet på moderna arbetsplatser. I övrigt bekräftades tidigare forskning om faktorer som gynnar kreativitet.

Two openended questions surveyed factors that respectively influenced creativity positive and negative. Statistic analysis showed a positive correlation between leadership and creativity. No significant correlation between boundaryless work and creativity. A qualitative method of category analysis showed boundaryless work influence on creativity as both positive and negative and in cooperation with leadership behaviours. The study present the relation between boundaryless work and leadership behaviour through the ”Boundaryless-Structure model”. The result contributes to understanding how boundaryless work influence creativity in modern workingplaces. Remaining result confirmed earlier findings of factors benificial for creativity.
