Abstract

Much has been written on what creativity is and where it happens, but little is known about how it is developed in people (Dörfler et al., 2010; Stierand, 2015) and how it can be organized in-between people (Hjorth, 2005). The article contributes to the literature on play and creativity by arguing that the practices of creative leaders can be framed within metaphorical characters that they play when organizing and leading for creativity in organizations.
