This subject for a book, not for a quick response. The issue could be material for a doctoral dissertation, but this is no dry, academic subject. It's critical to practice--and to making practice technically and financially viable.

There would be countless case studies to consider in such a study, since personalities vary so much, as do values and intentions of those involed. Architectural values naturally are at stake, but even more basic to the dynamic are personality types. This is a psychological issue, fundamentally, before it is one of prefessonal practice or artistic creativity.

If you want a short answer, I would say not NONE of by collaborative experieces have been painless, but large undertakings can't be done with the pain.

There's a common observation that we tend to seek those who share our values and intentions as colleages, when in truth what we may really need are those who have different values and intentions. There's the inherent dilemma.
