All employees undertake some form of formal or informal training throughout their professional careers. In fact, learning and training are a way of life in modern organizations, with employees expected to hold up‐to‐date, job‐relevant knowledge, skills, and attitudes (KSAs: traditionally in the literature the “A” refers to ability; for our purpose...
Chapter
Purpose - The reliance on teams in today's work environment underscores the importance of understanding how teams function. To better understand teams, one must be able to measure team dynamics or interaction. The purpose of this chapter is to outline an unobtrusive approach to measuring team dynamics from verbal communications. Methodology - The b...
Article
Teams do not operate in a vacuum, but in specific real-world contexts. For many teams, this context includes high-demand, high-stress conditions which can negatively impact team functioning. In this chapter, we discuss how stress may impact team cohesion and examine stress mitigation strategies to overcome these effects.
Article
Past research on deception detection has demonstrated the diagnostic value of attending to verbal content (e.g., message content) over nonverbal cues (e.g., gaze aversion; Vrij, 2008). Moreover, research has also demonstrated the value of computer-based text analysis programs for distinguishing truthful from deceptive communications (Hauch, Masip,...
Chapter
The aim of this chapter is to present the reader with a theoretically- and empiricallybased discussion of how to train teams to high performance. This discussion is organized around the tenets of team training. We begin by providing the reader with a foundation concerning the science of teams and team training. We follow this discussion by offering...
Article
This research constitutes an initial empirical examination of how the introduction of a third party impacts interviewee rapport in an investigative interview setting. Whereas some have argued that employing two interviewers may be beneficial in an investigative interview setting, others have speculated that adding a “third person in the communicati...
Article

This paper describes the results of a meta-analytic integration of the relative contributions of three different components of team training to the efficacy of team training interventions. The three specific components of team training that have received empirical scrutiny in the past are cross training, team coordination and adaptation training, a...
Chapter
As operational environments become increasingly fluid, organizations are turning to teams as a proven performance arrangement to structure complex work. Teams are ubiquitous in modern organizations because they can be used to create synergies, streamline workflow, deliver innovative services, satisfy incumbent needs, maximize the benefits of techno...
Article
Many organizations have been using teams as a means of achieving organizational outcomes (such as productivity and safety). Research has indicated that teams, especially those operating in complex environments, are not always effective. There is a subset of organizations in which teams operate that are able to balance effectiveness and safety despi...
Article
There is no question that interdisciplinary teams are becoming ubiquitous in healthcare. It is also true that experts do not necessarily combine to make an expert team. However when teams work well they can serve as adaptive systems that allow organisations to mitigate errors within complex domains, thereby increasing safety. The medical community...
Chapter
Fostered by technological developments and globalization, culturally diverse teams are becoming a mainstay of organizational strategy. As the use of multi-cultural teams continues to increase, it becomes paramount to understand the mechanism(s) by which leaders can promote effectiveness within these teams. Despite this need, there are numerous chal...
Article
The events of September 11, 2001 have created a new set of security challenges for the aviation industry, including airports, airlines, pilots, passengers, and regulators. Flight deck crews have formed one of the linchpins in a system of prediction, prevention, and response. The first need for new training therefore was to focus on giving flight cr...

Simulation can benefit the medical community by training both individuals and teams to reduce human error and promote patient safety.
Article
Training problem solving teams presents a unique set of challenges to instructional designers. Given the criticality of teams to the performance of many organizations, it is important to develop training systems to support coordination and problem solving. While recent technological advancements, such as computer-based performance assessment, hold...
Article
Research conducted largely in medical and clinical settings suggests that receiving preparatory information prior to a stressful event can reduce negative responses to stress. Although results within this domain have been promising, little research has examined the efficacy of preparatory information on enhancing performance in a more applied task...
Article
Critical decisions are made every day by teams of individuals who must coordinate their activities to achieve effectiveness. Recently, researchers have suggested that shared mental models among team members may help them to make successful decisions. Several avenues for training shared mental models in teams exist, one of which is training in plann...
Conference Paper
Previous team decision-making research is reviewed and a Petri net representation of the replenishment-at-sea task is described. Three alternative Petri net representations of a team task are then presented. A functional representation which relies on a top-down decomposition of the task by function is a clear representation, but it lacks informati...
