Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis was to study how creativity can be improved within creative organizations, and the study was made both in Great Britain and in Sweden. We wanted to learn if creative employees have the possibility to use their creativity within their organization or if rules within the organization only hamper their creativity. We conducted interviews in both Sweden and in Great Britain and the focus on the study were on designers and product developers within the fashion industry. The research was a qualitative study consisting of a total of 7 semi-structured interviews. Designers and product developers feel that their creative ability sometimes gets hampered by their organization. We came to the conclusion that the manager need to be good at structure, trust, set up clear goals, conflict solving and communication and by that, let the organizations creative employees within it have the freedom to work at other places but at the office in order to get inspired by the environment.
