Most organizations and much of the scientific process now rely on work of teams with diverse skills and knowledge. Fortunately, in recent years there has been an increasing acknowledgement of the importance of social and contextual factors in creativity. Group Creativity summarizes the exciting new developments in the research on the processes involved in group or team creativity and innovation. This volume draws from a broad range of perspectives, such as cognition, groups, creativity, information systems, and organizational psychology.

These different perspectives have been brought together in one volume in order to focus attention on this developing literature and its implication for theory and application. The chapters of this volume are organized into two sections.

Special attention is devoted to the various processes that inhibit or facilitate group creativity.

The second section deals with the impact of various contextual or environmental factors on the creative group process. The chapters deal with issues of group autonomy, group socialization, mentoring, team innovation, knowledge
