Abstract Little is known about the influence of the creative and bureaucratic work environments on the dimensions of creativity and innovation in organisations operating in the United Arab Emirates. The objective of this paper is to examine the combined effect of the creative work environment determinants and organisational bureaucracy dimensions on the constructs of creativity and innovation. Results indicate that the 'stimulant' determinants of the creative work environment had strong, positive and statistically significant effects on creativity and innovation, while the dimension of organisational impediment ('obstacle' determinant) had a negative influence on innovation. The findings also indicate that the organisational bureaucracy factors had a moderate, negative effect on both creativity and innovation. It was also found that the determinants of the creative work environment provided no statistical significant predictive power, after having statistically controlled for the predictive effects of organisational bureaucracy.
