The present work intends to contribute to the debate about the identification of the key dimensions (Ekvall, 1996; Amason, 1996; Justesen, 2001; De Dreu et al., 2003) of an effective creative process of the teams (Hackman, 1987). The study has been developed trough a qualitative analysis formed of three research tools by means of the triangulation method: interviews, direct observation of the work teams and focus groups. The results of the investigation lead to give evidence of the importance of climate and experience, between all the other variables, to enable team creativity processes.
