Is increase in creativity also a benefit of self-organization to the Development Team?

Thank you.

Potentially yes. However, any cited "increase in creativity" would have to be substantiated...preferably with metrics that show the "increase". Can you suggest a means of doing this?

I hear you on this one. Hard to find. I'm thinking it is...

See this article:… 
And a quote therefrom:

"At the same time, self-managed teams are more robust to external disturbances, are faster and more creative in problem solving as they use the full potential of the team and not only one single decision making (and often bottle-necked) brain as seen in hierarchical command-and-control structures."

I think so, since in intellectual teams this requirement is a basic condition for the successful functioning of the team, since material incentives and specific deadlines can be very “blurred”.
