The Jam Session Model for Group Creativity and Innovative Technology

This paper builds on the analysis of factors observed at jazz jam sessions facilitating team creativity and improvisation as a model for managing organizational innovation. The model was established through detailed observations, surveys, historical research, and interviews. Even though the jazz metaphor has been used as a model for organizational improvisation the discussions rarely extend beyond the improvisational process of idea generation (Frishammar, Dahlskog, Krumlinde and Yazgan, 2016) towards a comprehensive model for team creativity and effective organizational management (Santos, Uitdewilligen and Passos, 2015). The seven factor Jam Session Model for Group Creativity and Innovative technology is built from a comprehensive analysis of the jam session process and exemplified with case studies of leading innovative companies such offering a theoretical and practical model for managing and facilitating group creativity and innovative technology.
