SPADARI, Gabriela Fabbro; NAKANO, Tatiana de Cássia  and  PEIXOTO, Evandro Morais. Creative Potential Scale in Organizations: Evidence of validity and precision. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.16, n.1, pp. 29-37. ISSN 1677-0471.

The present study aimed to investigate the psychometric properties of the Creative Potential for Organizations (EPCO), with the intention of assessing creativity in corporate environments. The sample was composed of 170 professionals from different areas, of both sexes, 71% female, with ages ranging between 18 and 63 years (34.23±10.14). The results indicated that the relevance of a factorial solution consisting of: Factor 1, with 16 items interpreted as restrictions and barriers for creativity in which content negatively affects creative expression; and factor 2, that has 12 items interpreted as attributes and features that encourage creativity, including content that elicits creative expression. As to the accuracy of the instrument, by means of Cronbach's alpha coefficients, the test showed good internal consistency points for both factors. It is concluded that, based on the results of initial studies, the EPCO presented satisfactory psychometric properties for the assessment of creativity.
