Créativité et organisation: Tensions communicationnelles

Creativity and Organization: Communication in Tension

In many ways, creativity is a counterintuitive object for the social sciences. Since creativity is generally associated with the stroke of genius, it would then be very presumptuous to try to grasp its mechanisms objectively. However, lately, the term creativity has invaded organizations’ discourses. No longer confined to the traditional professions linked to creation, it must now be mobilized by various communication media, editors, communication strategists and specialized consultants, but also by project managers, community leaders, HR managers, accountability, and so on. In short, everyone is called to creativity, supposing that we all contribute to it.

Must we conclude from these observations that in communication it's impossible not be creative? However, creativity omnipresence does not go without a feeling of blur associated with its use. Is the definition the same in all these areas? What essential element in the life of the organizations is it supposed to answer to be so constantly mobilized—even overused? Through the articulation between creativity, organization and communication, these are just a few questions to which the authors of this Special Issue answer.
