Student thesis: Master thesis


This master thesis investigates whether the Creative Problem Solving framework, allows for aspects relevant to creativity and culture, to be incorporated in a change process. Through an analysis of the project Innovativ Patientinddragelse based on empirical data gathered through observations and semi-structured interviews this master thesis sets out to examine how the concept of creativity can be meaningfully incorporated in an institution where risk-minimizing and standard processes are necessary to legitimate organizational behavior. The master thesis examines the concepts of climate, culture and motivation and their relevance in the creative process, alongside the aspect of sustaining change, and incorporating creativity tools in the everyday life of the organization. Through an examination of the creative process as a single session, the thesis sets out to examine relevant aspects to consider when designing and planning creative processes aiming at facilitating change in an organization.
