This article analyses the economic development from the point of view of organization production and considers the hypothesis that treatment of creativity is a fundamental determinant in order to make possible economic development at a local, regional, national and of course a global level. Developing the creativity means concentrating on the people and their ability to discover and determine production opportunities and make sure that each individual is able to promote and use creativity. This last one demands policies to support and encourage structures and practices which would help make possible the previously mentioned in the governance of the production.
