Abstract
Assessing the cognitive readiness of teams in complex work environments is critical for understanding team performance and targeting training resources. Analysis of Team Mental Models (TMMs) provides crucial knowledge for performing cognitive readiness assessment. However, current approaches to constructing TMMs are rigid, require substantial manual coding, and do not scale to the dynamics of real-world work environments. Aptima"s TeamInsight software overcomes these limitations by providing more robust and flexible representations of TMMs and a data collection framework that fits seamlessly into complex work environments. TeamInsight processes data from multiple team-related sources such as communications and workstation interactions and incorporates explicit team member input. TeamInsight applies innovative machine learning algorithms to create TMM representations that uncover latent concepts and provide an optimal fit to team process and interaction data. TeamInsight"s end-to-end data collection, representation, and analysis framework will enhance the ability of commanders, leaders, and managers to quickly assess the overall cognitive readiness of individuals and teams through TMMs.
