Can creativity be motivated by rewards? This question is the subject of controversy among psychologists and economists. Professor Michael J. Gibbs, faculty director of the Executive MBA Program and clinical professor of economics, provides some new insights into this question by discussing his latest research on innovation at an Indian technology company. The company uses interesting and unusual practices to motivate employees to generate new ideas on behalf of clients - including an experiment involving nonmonetary rewards for new ideas.
