ABSTRACT

The paper focuses on the management professionalism concept in the framework of a new type of economy, the "creative economy". In accordance with the skill-based approach accounting for the general professionalism model applicable to most occupations, a range of creative management abilities has been specified. It is creativity that turns into a professionally important feature of a modern manager which can be developed by occupational training educational programs and relevant training courses such as the Theory of Inventive Problem Solving and the Theory of Management Decision-Making. They enhance the understanding that internal factors and environment-related factors are essential to improving creative abilities. The creative class theory directly interrelates the development of this new social stratum with the economic success of regions. Under modern civilizational development, small regions can have greater economic power, since there is already no need for large material and human resources; another change in the economy is associated with the transition from firms’ competition for markets to the competition of cities for creative professionals.
