Abstract

How problem-solving and decision-making groups process information can impact outcome of their efforts. Information processing by groups, or collective information processing (CIP), in turn, is influenced by group communication. With the increasing use of computer-mediated communication (CMC) technologies by organizational workgroups, it makes sense that CIP-CMC theoretical frameworks are reexamined and opportunities for research identified. In this paper, we provide an overview of major theories related to CIP and CMC, and develop suggestions for future research.
