Abstract

The current metamorphism impels an educational institution to adjust itself rapidly to be an innovative organization with adjustment and change in the thinking process in order to bring about a novel valuable invention, leading to an organization of stability and development. Such adjustment is for the institution to be prepared for the metamorphism and producing students to meet the society’s need. The heart of the innovative organization is the teacher as the organization’s member who needs to work creatively. Fostering teachers’ creativity to drive the education institution to become an innovative organization can be conducted
through the following four procedures: (1) encouraging teachers to study, research, and apply knowledge by setting challenging work problems and goals; (2) building an effective teamwork with minimum authoritarianism for teachers’ enthusiasm for and confidence in creating a novel invention; (3) planning, creating accountability, and minimizing working procedures to primarily motivate teachers’ innovative approaches; and (4) providing optional channels of communication for listening and searching teachers’ achievements for their pride and leading to setting the educational institution’s novel working procedures.
