    This handbook contains 28 chapters dedicated to particularly complex phenomena, all written by leading experts in the field of organizational creativity. The format of the book follows the multi-level structure of creativity in organizations where creativity takes place at the individual level, the group level, and the organizational level.   In her book The Progress Principle, Amabile emphasizes progress (moving forward with one's work) over productivity (getting things done well and efficiently, irrespective of their importance).

    Productivity has become a national priority. Its effects are being felt on all levels--national, industrial, and individual. An organization must be able to measure productivity before effectively improving it. This volume is the first practical guide for developing productivity measurement systems. It describes the use of the Productivity Measurement and Enhancement System (ProMES) designed 5/5(1). Often when leaders talk about increasing productivity, what they really mean is that they think people should work harder. This is not a very motivating concept because what they are actually saying is that they do not believe their teams are working hard enough. This actually has the opposite effect, and it demotivates teams. It just isn't good leadership.

    This book further includes survey data about the use of productivity improvement strategies in a wide range of public and nonprofit organizations. Productivity in Public and Nonprofit Organizations will be of great interest to professionals and students in the fields of public administration, management, and organization studies.   Organizations with cultures that focus on their people and that invest in their future will in the long-run, be more competitive than cultures that view employees as mere costs to be reduced in times of trouble. It is often forgotten that productivity and the economic rewards that go with it are achieved through the people of an organization. A.
