4. Creativity

Innovating enterprises reported having used procedures supporting creativity more often than enterprises that did not engage in innovation activity between 2008 and 2010. The majority of the enterprises having used such procedures reported that they had worked successfully, or that no actual information was available on their functionality. Only a fraction of the enterprises reported that the used procedures had been unsuccessful.

For instance, 61 per cent of the enterprises with innovation activity had organised brainstorming sessions. More than two out of three estimated that the procedure had been successful. By contrast, around one-fifth of the non-innovating enterprises had organised brainstorming sessions, and just half of them estimated that the procedure had been successful.
