Abstract

The current study examined how training type (cross-training vs. team coordination training) influenced team performance under varying environmental conditions (routine vs. non-routine). Three-hundred and fifty-two undergraduate students (176 dyads) from a large northeastern university participated in the study. Data were collected through the NeoCITIES 1.0 simulation, which is a simulated task environment of an emergency management team. Findings indicated that training type had a significant impact on performance, such that dyads receiving cross-training had higher levels of performance than those receiving team coordination training. However, this effect did not vary across environmental conditions.
