Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review


In this qualitative meta-analysis of literature-based narratives from the field of haute cuisine we look through an antenarrative lens at the dynamic interplay of embodied practices of chefs that can bring about new creations. Our analysis led us to depict ‘prototypical’ characters that chefs seem to adopt when organizing and leading for creativity in teams. We believe that these prototypes may serve as points for orientation in order to look for and analyse evoking stories of team creativity and can also be useful for practitioners who need to prepare the organizing and do the leading for creativity in teams.
