Teamwork isn't easy. Fortunately, there is an increasing body of solid empirical research that examines team effectiveness, what we refer to as the "Science of Teamwork."
As part of NASA's Innovation Lecture series, I had the chance to give a talk on the Science of Teamwork at the Johnson Space Center. I shared what the research reveals about the drivers of team effectiveness, and described some of the psychological principles that underlie teamwork. I also summarized findings from three years of team research we've been conducting at NASA and engaged in a Q&A with the audience.
