Abstract

Information technology projects are almost always team efforts. Many factors influence the way that teams can successfully accomplish their objectives. One of these influences is the personality of the individual team members. This report explores some of the relationships between personality and information technology (IT) team issues and outcomes. A pilot study of university students reviews the role of personality in two major areas - team processes and overall success of the team project. A simplified classification based on MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator) is used to categorize personality types. One of the dependent variables is success on team projects as measured by the team outcome. In addition, a comprehensive construct measuring team processes is studied. A third area studied is the personality diversity within a team. Preliminary findings and relationships from the study are reviewed.
