ABSTRACT
Nowadays, organizations are questing for creative employees to help them cope with the increasingly complex, dynamic, and challenging environment. Not only would they desire novel ideas that improve the effectiveness of the existing practices, but also radically novel ideas that create new business opportunities. Organizations strive to create new demand or blue oceans that denote “all the industries not in existence today—the unknown or untapped market space, untainted by competition”. A number of factors have resulted in creativity becoming more critical across jobs and organizations. For example job stress, work load and work place motivations are such factors that have direct and indirect effects on creativity. So, this study tries to appear these relations among executive employees of Islamic Republic of Iran Railways Organization. Using a convenient sample of 245 employees, we found that motivation and role ambiguity variables have a reverse significant relationship with creativity. In addition, role conflict showed a reverse significant relationship with intrinsic motivation.
