Abstract

In many contexts, teams are capable of solving complex problems that are well beyond the capacity of any one individual team member (Salas, Cannon-Bowers, & Johnston, 1997; Salas, Rosen, Burke, & Goodwin, 2009). However, not all teams are successful, and failures often come at high costs. Identifying factors that distinguish successful and unsuccessful team collaboration has thus been a consistent and highly relevant topic of team research.
