From the Publisher
"Creativity has become a valued commodity in the business world, and in this volume Gibb (human resources managemen, U of Strathclyde, Scotland) considers the connection between human resource development and the creative class. Examining industries in the realms of science, engineering, design, arts, education, and music, he discusses theconcepts of aesthetic value systems, imagination, and beauty and relates these concepts to the practice of human resources development." — Art Book News Annual, January 2007
