Project-Driven Heterarchy: An Empirical Study on Project Teams’ Learning Abilities and Creativity

Janusz Marek Lichtarski


A growing body of research shows that projects’ success require a high level team learning abilities and creativity. Since project-based organizations are constructed on the basis of different set of principles and mechanisms than hierarchical ones, the relationships between heterarchy and learning abilities and creativity of project teams seems to be critical. The paper aims to contribute to the current research on project structures. Specifically, the aim of the paper is to present the results of the questionnaire research on the team learning abilities and creativity in project-based organizations. The study was performed on 370 teams represented by line managers (n=102), project managers (n=122), and project team members (n=146). The study depicts correlations between intensity of heterarchy, and the level of learning abilities and creativity perceived by managers and project team members (non-managers).
