i&R to help teams to become more efficient and effective

A team works with a degree of collective intelligence, and must share and manage its members’ weak and strong points when embarking on innovation projects. An appropriate approach to configure innovative teams has to provide criteria, to distribute roles, and manage activities across its members.

Development and validation of a tool to help teams to know and manage collective intelligence.  Team Equilibrium Application

Former research

After so many years of working in teams, different in sizes and coats, having much more failures than successes, something has been learnt: We always try to get a better environment but it takes time and a lot of patience to manage egos, conflicts and misunderstandings.        

[cp] Non-Technical Skills in Chronic Care Healthcare Professionals: Applying Health Consensus in Collective Self-Assessment
Martí, T.,  Monguet JMª, Trejo, A., Escarrabill J.  (2015). Collective Intelligence 2015, University of Michigan
The goal was to test the Non-Technical Skills (NTS) model applying collective self-assessment among professionals involved in care of chronic patients. Two aspects were assessed: the current NTS level of the team and its potential for improvement. The final purpose of this model is to guide healthcare managers to design and prioritize (collective) training strategies for NTS. + [Paper]

TE agregated exagon design[cp] Team Equilibrium and Innovation Performance

It may be taken for granted that there must be a balance of roles within teams to foster creativity. Team Equilibrium is a system that allows a group of people to share, compare and aggregate their profiles using the “six hats model”, proposed by de Bono. In a first empiric exploration, with a group of design students, it’s interesting to look at the aggregated hexagon of the 60 people highlighting the natural creative bias of the group. + [Paper]
