Groups, Teams, and Teamwork
Factors Influencing Team Performance
Social norms influence what members of a team see as acceptable behavior, and potentially have a strong impact on performance.
A group is said to be in a state of cohesion when its members possess bonds linking them to one another and to the group as a whole.
On interdependent teams, roles can be key to the performance of the team, as team members may specialize in different interdependent tasks.
Effective communication is often a key factor to the successful performance of team tasks.
