Abstract

Since the recent phenomena of organization are rapidly changed in terms of technological advances in today’s world, it is unarguable to say that sometimes, it also creates some bad impact on the employees itself, therefor, many organizations tried to come across the challenges of improving their employee capability such as creativity. And many researchers found that leader-member exchange (LMX) could be related to employee creativity within the organization especially in the organization that concerned creativity as a main concept. This research proposed to investigate the relationship between LMX and employee creativity through intrinsic motivation within MOE, Thailand. The paper-based questionnaires were distributed to 186 manager–employee dyads from center educational technology (CET) undertaken by Ministry of Education in Thailand. This study is used confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) and structural equation modeling (SEM) with SPSS 23.0 and AMOS 22.0 to analyze the data and test the hypotheses. The results shows that LMX is positively related to employee creativity. Results also support the mediating role of intrinsic motivation between two main variables.
