Flexibility is the capacity to willingly consider new options for accomplishing the collaborative evaluation tasks, even though those options might differ from one’s own views or evaluation style. Obviously, flexibility requires plasticity in attending to differing options, and a high level of discernment in order to appreciate the relevant features within those options. Creativity is the quality of being able to produce original ideas and fruitful collaborative evaluation work. In a flexible environment, creative improvements are bound to continuously happen in the way tasks are being accomplished, resources are being shared, etc. Using the most appropriate techniques, everyone is able to commit to action, promoting a sense of shared responsibility while adjusting to changes within the collaborative evaluation.
