Improving Team Performance: Proceedings of the Rand Team Performance Workshop.
Goldin, Sarah E., Ed.; Thorndyke, Perry W., Ed.
The 16 papers in this collection discuss options and areas for future research on teams, including performance requirements, structure, communications, training techniques, and organizational determination of team performance, from the perspectives of varied disciplines; e.g., psychology, computer science, management science, and decision theory. These papers were presented at a workshop designed to review research in varied fields that might have potential relationships to team performance, consider promising directions for research, and promote discussion of potential interdisciplinary research methodologies and facilities for improving team training and research. The workshop was also intended to help identify current problems in training and Navy team performance. A summary of the major workshop themes is followed by the text of papers presented and summaries of follow-up sessions for the eight major workshop topics: gaming and simulation, organization theory, small group processes, cognitive psychology, training and instruction, heuristic modeling, decision theory, and human engineering. A 7-page bibliography is provided. (LMM)
