Answer to #1

FALSE

Answer to #2

Innovation occurs gradually, and scientists have identified five species stages. Stage l: Setting the Agenda involves creating a mission statement; that is, a document describing an organization's overall direction and general goals for accomplishing that movement. Stage 2: Setting the Stage may involve narrowing certain broad goals into more specific tasks and gathering the resources to meet them. It also may involve assessing the environment, both outside and inside the organization, and searching for anything that may support or inhibit later efforts to break the rules by being creative. Stage 3: Producing the Ideas involves coming up with new ideas and testing them. It also is the stage in which individual and small group creativity enters the picture. Stage 4: Testing and Implementing the Ideas happens after an initial group of individuals has developed an idea and other parts of the organization become involved. Resources in the task domain are important at this stage. Stage 5: Assessing the Outcome is the final stage, and three outcomes are possible. If the resulting idea has been a total success, it will be accepted and carried out in the future. The process is over if the idea has been a complete failure, in which case there is no good reason to continue. If the new idea shows promise, however, and has made some progress toward the organization's objectives but still has problems, the process starts again at Stage 2.

Answer to #6

Creativity in individuals and teams involves three basic components: domain-relevant skills, creativity-relevant skills, and intrinsic task motivation. Domain-relevant skills pertain to any task requires certain talents, knowledge, or skills. Those skills and abilities we already have constitute the raw materials of creativity. Creativity-relevant skills move beyond the basic skills, into being creative and require additional skills; that is, special abilities that help people to approach what they do in novel ways. Intrinsic task motivation focuses on the level of desire to do work because it interesting, engaging, or challenging. People are most likely to be creative when they are passionate about their work.
