Process-oriented model of integration in knowledge-diverse teams

Abstract

Often, in teams where members possess diverse knowledge, integrating the unique expertise of members is critical (e.g., interdisciplinary, transdisciplinary teams). In this talk, I will present a process-oriented account of the integration of knowledge in teams when members possess predominately unique (as opposed to shared) information. Within the context of an agent-based model, I outline how the configuration of personality, within teams, function to promote knowledge sharing, selection, assimilation, and ultimately, the integration of information. I will then present results from virtual experiments to highlight the utility of the model and end with a discussion of future plans to validate the model using empirical data.
