The componential model of creativity and innovation in organisations (Amabile, 1988) focuses on factors that influence employees’ creativity in the workplace. The model is widely accepted in the creativity field, which is why many theorists have used it as a foundation to develop their own. However, a limitation of the model is its predominant focus on individual/organisational factors to the exclusion of external factors outside the organisation that might influence employees’ creativity. Moreover, the revised model by Amabile and Pratt (2016) prioritised organisational motivation to innovate a factor within the model influence employees’ creativity. Despite this, limited studies have examined the direct and mediating role of organisational motivation to innovate to inspire employees’ creativity.
