Abstract : This report includes: TEAM CREATIVITY AS A FUNCTION OF THE CREATIVITY OF THE MEMBERS, by Harry C. Triandis, Alan R. Bass and others. Apr 62 (Technical rept. no. 6) Data from experiments on cognitive factors which affect group creativity suggest that the relationship of group heterogeneity to group creativity is much more complex than was suspected by either Kelley and Thibaut (1954) or Campbell (1960). A procedure is derived for the study of dyadic creativity. The most significant variables determining group creativity was derived. Mapping the relationships between variables and stating the conditional laws specifying these relationships is yet to be studied. The second report is a first step towards the determination of the relationship of group and individual performance in groups of more than two individuals.
