Research on Managing Groups and Teams
This volume addresses the need to focus on temporal adaptations of teams. Modern organizations have been relying on teams more often to cope with the changing economic and technological climate. An increase in the use of teams has led to more team research throughout the fields of cognitive science, human factors, organizational psychology, assessment, and behavioral science. How teams grow and change is important for their performance and their members’ satisfaction with their work; therefore, the attention that this book lends to teams’ temporal factors is much deserved.
Editors Eduardo Salas, Lauren B. Landon and William B. Vessey have gathered some of the best and brightest team researchers to contribute to this book. The various chapters offer readers background information, temporal measurement tools, and implications for research and practice. The book covers such interesting perspectives as team leadership, trust, cultural implications, and temporal implications in long-duration, extreme situations, including space exploration. This book serves as a resource to researchers who study teams, managers who lead teams, and those who work in teams.
Contributed by psychologists and others mainly from the US, the 12 chapters in this volume explore various aspects of team dynamics over time. They cover conceptual foundations, such as team composition and adaptation, measuring collaborative problem-solving skills over time, and predictors of team dynamics; special topics like the functional behavior of leaders over time, team trust development and maintenance, factors and threats to team dynamics in long-duration extreme environments, collaborative problem solving and team development, the influence of culture, and verbal communications as a predictor of team dynamics; and challenges and new directions in examining team cohesion over time and temporal dynamics in multiteam systems.
