Fluid Tasks And Fluid Teams: The Impact Of Diversity In Experience And Team Familiarity On Team Performance

In this paper, the authors consider how the structures of tasks and teams interact to affect team performance. They study the effects of diversity in experience on a team's ability to respond to task changes, by separately examining interpersonal team diversity and intrapersonal team diversity. They also examine whether team familiarity - team members' prior experience working with one another - helps teams to better manage challenges created by task changes and greater interpersonal team diversity.
