Abstract

Creativity is widely accepted to be important for design, raising the interest to identify ways to train designers to be more creative. To improve such creativity training this study observed individual creativity skills during team interactions and their influence on the creative process. The key finding is the importance of Process awareness, in which individual designers utilize own knowledge of cognitive processes to manage/advance teamwork. It is thus important to educate designers about such cognitive processes during training and arm them with knowledge to strategically deploy them.
