Research Institution
"In Phase I we defined a framework to categorize teams based on underlying team competencies. This classification approach categorized teams in such a way that their necessary competencies are apparent following assignment. Understanding thesecompetencies is central to developing team performance improvement methods. Be it training, team design, or technology insertion, the design and implementation of the intervention must map to team competencies and operational needs.In Phase II we will demonstrate a web-based tool, designed around our comprehensive framework of human team performance, that will diagnose team competencies to be used in the development of team performance engineering methods. We will begin our Phase IIefforts by looking to expand our Phase I development efforts, specifically focused on translating our framework into a software-based team diagnostic tool. We will select a real-world command team and use this tool to conduct an analysis of operations.We will use the results of this analysis for generating performance improvement approaches for the selected team, focusing on team training and team design and to develop a synthetic task environment for the selected team. Finally, we will conductexperimentation using the synthetic task environment to evaluate our team performance engineering methods."
