On Teams: Unifying Themes and the Way Ahead

  • Scott I. Tannenbaum (a1), John E. Mathieu (a2), Eduardo Salas (a3) and Debra Cohen (a4)
Abstract

The commentaries to our focal article were both interesting and stimulating. As we generally agreed with the major points raised in the commentaries, we use this response to frame an on-going tension point or challenge regarding team definitions, highlight a few unifying themes that weave through our initial article and the commentaries, and discuss the transition from research to informed practice. The past few decades have been exciting times for team researchers and practitioners, and the time is ripe for new energies and approaches.
