Cognitive processes in teams have been a valuable arena for team researchers to explore. Team cognition research advances and informs a variety of disciplines, including cognitive and social sciences, engineering, military science, organizational science, human factors, medicine, and communications. There has been a great deal of progress in the team cognition literature, yet the field is still in its early stages of maturity. There is much more to be gained from the field’s insights and there is a need to unite the diverse array of scholarly ideas that permeate the field. This movement will serve to organize the research and ideas that have surfaced in the field, thereby making them more accessible to different disciplines while at the same time, motivating continued progress in the field. This book aims to be a step in this direction and acts as a forum for leading scholars to share their ideas, theories, models, and conceptions about what matters and where more attention is needed in the field of team cognition.
'A 'must-read' for anyone who wants to keep up with the rapidly changing study of team cognition.' - Gary Klein, author of Streetlights and Shadows: Searching for the keys to adaptive decision making.
'Team building, problem solving in teams, and their maintenance and evaluation are an essential part of leadership at higher levels of organizations. This book fits into the need for providing more research and scientific linkages to this applied problem in a wide range of settings.' - Edwin Fleishman, George Mason University, USA
'The ideas which will be considered new and unique include the dual focus on macro and team cognition from a range of cross-disciplinary perspectives.' - C. Shawn Burke, University of Central Florida, USA
'This book tackles a daunting set of problems, including the measurement and definition of team knowledge, the assessment of team members’ intentions and decision making processes, developing an understanding the role of time pressure in team decision making and performance, explicating the links between leadership and team cognition, modeling shared knowledge and cognitive similarity, developing of technologies to facilitate collaboration, using team tasks to test and expand models of shared cognition, and developing a better understanding of the demands different types of tasks place on teams.' - From the Series foreword by Kevin Murphy and Jeanette Cleveland
