Thanks for stopping by. I am Kandarp Mehta, a PhD from IESE Business School, Barcelona. At present I am working in the Entrepreneurship Department of IESE Business School and teach Negotiation in MBA and Executive Education programs. However, my research has mostly been about Creativity in organizations. Apart from being an MBA from Gujarat University, India and a Certified Cost Accountant (ICWA), I am also a trained theatre actor. I have been extremely fortunate to get an opportunity of knowing and working with Dr. Pradip Khandwalla, Ex-Director Indian Institute of Management India, a Scholar in Organization Theory and Creativity, a Poet and lot more. We have co-authored two research articles together, which have been published in respected publications like Vikalpa (IIM-Ahmedabad, India) and Creative Enterprise (Edited by Tony Davila and Marc Epstein)and International Journal of Knowledge, Culture and Change Management. I have also pursued my theatrical interest with lot of passion and have worked in semi-fictional documentaries, short films and theatre plays in English, Spanish, French, Gujarati and Hindi.
About the Blog
In this blog I talk about anything and everything that I find creative. The term Creatologue has been derived from ‘Creatology‘. The term ‘Creatology’ was coined by István Magyari-Beck as a new interdisciplinary science to study the complex phenomenon of Creativity, at the levels of personality, group, organization and culture/civilisation. Creativity has been studied by different disciplines like psychology, sociology, decision science, mathematics, computer science, anthropology, organization theory, neurology to name a few. This blog is an attempt to explore and understand different dimensions of this interesting, complex and immensely important phenomenon, called Creativity.
