Abstract : This research report offers an integrative view of key challenges that military design teams encounter, and describes lessons, strategies, and approaches used by military leaders to optimize the performance of design teams in operational contexts. Topics include assembling design teams, managing intergroup dynamics, fostering cognitive flexibility, integrating non-military SMEs into the team, capturing the teams evolving understanding, and conveying insights to stakeholders. The report presents findings from previous research on teams as well as insights from interviews and a survey with those who have worked in design teams in operational settings.
