The purpose of this study is to explore the effect of creativity management factors on perceived R&D performance. To do this, the data (885cases) were collected from 19 Korean Government-supported Research Institutes, and 3 hypotheses derived from the model of creativity management(after here CM) were tested. Major findings are as follows: 1) CM constructs are grouped into diversity, autonomy, connectivity, redundancy and flexibility factors; 2) The major factors that can explain R&D performance perceived by scientists and engineers are connectivity, autonomy, diversity and flexibility; 3) All CM factors have significant relationship with satisfaction of the employees; 4) Flexibility and connectivity factors give effects on turnover intention of the members. This study has some limitations in model building and empirical testing. This study, however, provides theoretical and managerial implications about CM and R&D management, particularly Government-supported Research Institutes in Korea.
