Title

Impact of social structure on team performance and rate of network change

Abstract

"The intention of this research is to understand the impact of social structure on team performance. Data collection occurred at a Massachusetts university where 530 incoming students enrolled in an introductory course on teams and organizations. The individuals comprise 125 teams treated with four intervention techniques to determine the affect on student performance. Each group completes a network survey and performs a mixed-motivational simulation exercise for a fictional company. The profit obtained from the simulation exercise is defined as team performance"--Abstract, leaf iii.
