This Special Issue will focus on the areas of creativity management and engineering with a particular emphasis in human resource management and production engineering.
It seeks cultural and geographic diversity in studies of human resource management and engineering and uses that have a special impact on organisational communications, change processes and work practices, reflecting the diversity of societal and infrastructural conditions.
Creativity management and engineering, worldwide, is facing enormous challenges by sweeping political, social and economic changes. Whether we are a manager, an engineer, a policy maker, a strategist, a practitioner, or a researcher, we need to know what is happening, in both national and international environments, to be able to understand and develop effective responses to meet these new demands and challenges.
