About this book

Compiling best practices and original research, this book examines the factors that influence the sustainability of creativity and innovation in organisations and proposes a toolkit to assess gaps within existing strategy.

Both creativity and innovation have become pillars for leveraging competitive advantage in recent years, and therefore this book is a vital read for anyone engaged in ensuring sustainable development in organisations, particularly those within the Middle East.
