Despite the importance of constraints in creative efforts, little research examines the role of constraints in the creative process, how leaders manage these constraints, and implications for educating leaders of creative efforts. The present chapter synthesizes the literature on constraints and leadership of creative efforts to provide an initial framework of constraints and creativity. Furthermore, this chapter proposes an initial model of constraint management portraying the cognitive and practical processes leaders engage in when managing constraints. The complex and dynamic nature of constraints, as highlighted by the model, emphasizes the need for educational efforts specifically addressing constraint management in creative endeavors. Therefore, this chapter provides practical suggestions for educating future leaders in constraint management.
