Abstract This paper aims to present the study results devoted to organizational creativity. The factors present in the organizational context widely recognized in the literature as being able to promote, or conversely, demote creativity in the organization (Amabile, 1983; 1988) were considered. The objetive was to adapt the ICCAT (Conditions Indicators to Create on the Work Environment) brasilian scale (Bruno-Faria and Veiga, 2012) into portuguese population and examine its psychometric properties. The sample was made up of 243 portuguese employees. Results outlined 6 factors enhancing creativity (organization’s strategy, leadership support, physical environment, atmosphere among coworkers, challenging activities and freedom to act) and a triad of inhibiting factors (inadequate leadership, difficulty of communication and rigidity of rules and regulations, and workload pressure), as environmental barriers to creativity highlighting the context conditions to be fostered in order to achieve more creative organizations.
