This study represents an attempt to understand the individual and team level performance processes and communication of tactical decision making teams. The findings of a past study on decision making in dyads (Kleinman & Serfaty, 1989) was replicated and extended to include (a) larger teams (b) hierarchically structured teams (c) concurrent performance of team and individual tasks, and (d) verbal communication, in an attempt to enhance the generalizability of the research. The major findings of the current study differ from those reported by Kleinman and his colleagues (1989).
