This paper presents a computational approach to modelling group creativity. It presents an analysis of two studies of group creativity selected from different research cultures and identifies a common theme (“idea build-up”) that is then used in the formalisation of an agent-based model used to support reasoning about the complex dynamics of building on the ideas of others. The main observations of this model are centred on the effects of group formation in defining the interplay between idea-giving and idea-taking.
