Within many domains, complexity encompasses many nuances of ill-definition, fluidity, organizational variation, uncertainty, conflicting constraints, and multiple solutions. Responses to these areas of complexity necessitate the social construction of knowledge among various multidisciplinary team members. Group Cognition is offered as the basis of all cognition and is explained as a combination of Distributed and Coordinated Cognition that directly affects the creation/recreation of distributed and similar knowledges within a team.
