This article analyses information availability and utilization as determinants of creativity of managers in commercial banks in Nigeria. The single stage random sampling technique was used to select 16 out of the 25 commercial banks with a population size of 1507 managers. Thereafter, a questionnaire was used to collect data on a sample size of 1179 managers out of which 932 responded given a response rate of 79.1 percent. The study found that information availability and utilization had significant correlation with creativity of the respondents. In addition, information availability and information utilization jointly and individually have significantly determined creativity of managers in commercial banks in Nigeria. It is therefore recommended that the board of management in these commercial banks should make information available on time for use of managers for their improved creativity.

Keywords: Information availability, information utilization, creativity, managers, commercial banks, Nigeria.
