Necessity of Others  – Mother of Invention

Contract Design  for R&D Licensing

It has long been considered as fact that creativity is most evident when people are self-motivated (intrinsically) in their work. Looking at data from two organizations and supported by a laboratory study, we found that intrinsic motivation was much more effective when linked with a focus on others...more
