The CCTS Team Science component identifies and implements the best evidence-based teamwork practices for effective scientific research teams. Although most research teams are formed without application of organizational rules, the academic field of team science has shown that teams of all kinds work better if they follow certain strategies. The best strategies for biomedical research teams are just being identified and are complicated by the fact that such research involves multidisciplinary teams in multi-team systems. The work of many research teams can be stalled or completely derailed by resolvable issues in areas such as communication, planning and goal setting, and conflict. The CCTS Team Science component is especially equipped to address these potential barriers to successful collaboration, implement trainings and best practices guided by research, and evaluate the learning progress of these teams.
The Team Science component can help research teams at CCTS institutions identify their team’s strengths and potentials for improvement. If you are interested in working with the component on such an analysis, please fill out this form: http://mdanderson.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_d1k6ziDj9k576iW].
CCTS research teams can also participate in the component’s research on what makes research teams effective. To participate in this research, please contact Dr. Daniel Ingels (DJIngels@mdanderson.org) to schedule a brief informational session.
The Team Science component has developed a framework for team effectiveness that is grounded in both the science and the unique knowledge and experience of those working across different sectors of healthcare and biomedicine. This framework ensures all team initiatives are evidence based yet practical.
The Team Science component is aided by the diverse backgrounds of its personnel:
