    Abstract

    The aim of this paper is to critique and review the role of individuals and teams in idea generation as part of the overall organisational creativity and innovation process. Key objectives are to determine organisational development needs and research agendas in this area. Organisations continue to emphasise the need for increased creativity and innovation within their employees and markets. However, the literature and organisational practice relating to these areas remains somewhat lacking in regard to the front end of creativity and innovation, namely idea generation. First, this paper briefly reviews the creativity literature from individual and team perspectives, identifying the need for more research into idea generation as part of creativity. Second, this paper reviews the idea generation literature and identifies agendas for further research.
