Creativity is frequently referred to as an important dynamic of design. However, over 50 years of empirical research has suggested that social influences have a detrimental effect on creativity in collaborating groups. The results of this research indicate that design teams may not be as creative as they could. be, resulting in a negative impact on the design process. In this paper we build upon previous research to identify what effect operational mechanisms have on creativity, in order to determine how best to support the creative process in design.
