Abstract:

The work described in this report is part of an ongoing research program looking at the effects of team structure on the effectiveness of decision making teams. Team structures are investigated with respect to their fit to situational demands and to the characteristics of team members. Fit is considered both statically and dynamically. In the latter case, teams performing under one structure encounter situational demands that either are or are not consistent with the structure and, in the latter case, must reconfigure their structure to fit better the situations. During the time period intra-team processes of teamwork and learning also were investigated along with team task performance.
