Abstract

It is widely considered that success in the design and development of an engineering system is contingent upon the team having a shared vision of the problem they are solving. The goal of this research is to determine which factors improve the performance of an engineering team. One of the aspects explored is the effectiveness of arranging teams based upon each team member's cognitive problem solving style preference using the Adaption-Innovation framework1. This paper presents a complete experiment evaluating concept map data from the design stage of engineering, graduate student, teams.
