Abstract:

Over the past several years, considerable progress has been made in improving the effectiveness of the soldier performing as an individual, but performance of soldiers as teams has not been systematically addressed. This report details the construction of demographic survey instruments that were used to identify what types of teams exist and how these teams are distributed within and across Army branches. The survey provides a catalogue of teams and identifies their characteristics. Essentially, thirteen Army subject areas, all combat and combat support services, were surveyed. The average Army team was found to consist of 6.7 members who fill 4.3 positions, has 2.5 ranks represented with members categorized under 2.0 MOSs. Each team has 0.5 members with skill level 40 or above, 0.6 with skill level 30, 1.9 with skill level 20, and 3.1 with skill level 10. The team uses 3.9 pieces of equipment while performing 4.9 activities of which 1.0 is performed by the team as a unit, 2.4 by individuals, and 1.6 by small groups other than the full team.
