In a wide variety of settings, organizations generate a number of possible solutions to a problem - ideas - and then select a few for further development. The authors examine the effectiveness of two group structures for such tasks - the team structure, in which the group works together in time and space, and the hybrid structure, in which individuals first work independently and then work together.
