Abstract

Over the past decade there has been substantial growth in teams and team work, both in the world of research as well as in industry. is interest is due in part to the increasing complexity of the nature of work. at is, complex tasks lend themselves to using team structures (Sundstrom, De Meuse, & Futrell, 1990). Measuring and modeling team processes is important in understanding where and how teams can be employed in the accomplishment of tasks (Dickinson & McIntyre, 1997). It follows that modeling performance and establishing performance criteria in training environments are also important issues (Coovert & Craiger, 1997). Moreover, team competencies (knowledge, skills, and abilities [KSAs]) are vital to understanding and evaluating team performance in dynamic environments (Cannon-Bowers & Salas, 1998).
