This GSS field investigation studied group productivity, consensus levels and perceived participation equity of 239 Mexican participants within GSS and non-GSS environments. Results indicate that Mexican GSS-supported groups generated more ideas and more unique idea-categories than traditional manual groups. However, Mexican non-GSS (manual) groups generated higher consensus levels, but greater changes in consensus levels were generated by GSS groups. Mexican GSS participants also reported greater levels of participation equality than manual participants
