Abstract
Research question-/s: How does the time perceived by employees influence their individual innovative behaviour?

Methodology: The research strategy of the study is quantitative with the use of a deductive method with influences of induction. Overall the design is a cross-sectional study design with the primary source of data collection through an online survey administered to a selected sample.

Theoretical perspectives: Literature of time on an individual level and innovative behaviour forms the theoretical foundation of this thesis. In addition, theory in the fields of creativity, psychology as well as time on an organizational level has been applied.

Conclusions: Employee´s time management and future temporal orientation... (More)

Conclusions: Employee´s time management and future temporal orientation influence their innovative behaviour. A hopeless temporal orientation towards the past and temporal persistence show no statistical significance support for influencing innovative behaviour. (Less)
