The goal of group brainstorming is to accumulate an abundance of ideas. Communicative, perceptual and cognitive processes are arranged to form a socio-technical system that may help produce more and better creative ideas (Wang, Dan, Susan 2010). However, group dynamics greatly influence the efficacy of group brainstorming. Furthermore, brainstorming group members are encouraged to combine other ideas into their own and to build on the ideas of others and develop those ideas further (Boddy, 2008). In reality, as far as I am concerned, identifying new ideas can be difficult for a team due to individuals’ limited vision and time. Moreover, group members also find it hard to express their ideas if there remain some silent participants though they got some important ideas in their mind. According to the SIAM model (developed by Nijstad and Wolfgang, 2006), incentive ideas will increase the availability of semantic information, while reducing the time needed for information search memory. For example, during a group discussion a member just listens to the others but they do not take part in that group discussion though they have the ideas and skills. Hence, I can conclude by stating that idea generation requires cognitive psychological process which will help to bring valuable insights and it will also help to enhance group level information processing and performance.

construction without sharing the models.
Used in such limited ways, BIM does not come close to realising its full potential. At the other end of the spectrum, BIM can provide a collaborative framework among all project parties, allowing the free-flow of data about what is being designed and how it will be constructed. Collaborative use of BIM takes full advantage of BIM's capabilities.

group responsibilities, and having a coordinated and collaborative method of accomplishing the work. Even having a good leader would have helped this mess of a group. From reading this case study it seems like the group is having some very real problems in their route of communication which as I read the text communication is key in almost any relationship. It seems like each of the group members are possibly not being valued as being part of the team. Instead of talking positively about each other and…
