Team Role Experience and Orientation in Predicting Team Performance in a Spaceship Bridge Simulation
SessionvPOS1: Poster Gallery
DescriptionTeam roles have been suggested to be a key predictor of team performance metrics, however, there is little research in this area. We introduce a structural equation model of the relationship between team composition as measured by Team Role Experience and Orientation (TREO) dimensions and team performance metrics in a co-operative spaceship simulation game. The results of the model indicate that variance in team composition operationalized as team roles and mediated by resources accounts for 52.5% of the team's performance, however, the influence of team roles is minimally predictive. These results call into question the predictive validity of team roles as measured by TREO dimensions when applied as a team input variable. Our investigation suggests further study into team roles’ predictive ability on team performance is needed.
