Question Title

* 1. You are invited to participate in a research study to examine the impacts of perceived creativity, leadership style, and organizational formality on organizational innovation. This is a research project being conducted by Holly Becker at the University of the Cumberlands.

Your participation is requested because you work for an Oklahoma-based cultural institution. If you do not currently work for an Oklahoma-based museum, gallery, zoo, aquarium, botanic garden, park, or similar institution, please do not complete this survey. Please do not complete the survey more than once. 

Your participation in this research study is voluntary. If you decide to participate in this research survey, you may withdraw at any time. If you decide not to participate in this study or if you withdraw from participating at any time, you will not be penalized.

The procedure involves completing an online survey that will take approximately 10 to 15 minutes. Your responses will be confidential and we do not collect identifying information such as your name, email address, or IP address. The survey questions will be about your perceptions of your own creativity, your leader's creativity, your organization's innovation, your organization's level of formality, and your leader's leadership style. 

We will do our best to keep your information confidential. All data is stored in a password-protected electronic format. To help protect your confidentiality, the surveys will not contain information that will personally identify you. It is possible that the top leader of an organization will be identifiable to the researcher. In this case, any identifying information will be deleted before data analysis begins. The results of this study will be used for scholarly purposes only and will be shared with University of the Cumberlands representatives. Aggregate data and statistical analysis may be shared with members of the Oklahoma cultural institution sector. 

If you have any questions about the research study, please contact Holly Becker at This research has been reviewed according to the University of the Cumberlands IRB procedures for research involving human subjects.
