A case study of crisis management readiness in cross-national contexts: Applying team cognition theories to crisis response teams

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Crisis response necessitates timely, effective responses in a chaotic, uncertain environment. This complexity challenges teamwork by straining resources (both physical and human cognitive). Overcoming these challenges demands that teams are able to effectively coordinate and collaborate across all levels of a response, meaning they must share information, develop a shared understanding of the context, and develop common ground. In this environment, the impact of cultural components on effective teamwork is often overlooked.
