Team Processes Team process is a term that reflects the different types of activities and interactions that occur within teams and contribute to their ultimate end goals. Team characteristics, like member diversity, task interdependence, team size, and so forth, affect team processes. Team processes, in turn, have a strong impact on team effectiveness.

Process Loss Coordination loss consumes time and energy that could otherwise be devoted to task activity. Production blocking occurs when members have to wait on one another before they can do their part of the team task. Motivational loss is the loss in team productivity that occurs when team members do not work as hard as they could. Social loafing happens when members exert less effort when working on team tasks than they would if they worked alone on those same tasks.

Taskwork Processes Taskwork processes are the activities of team members that relate directly to the accomplishment of team tasks. When teams engage in creative behavior , their activities are focused on generating novel and useful ideas and solutions. Brainstorming involves a face-to-face meeting of team members in which each offers as many ideas as possible about some focal problem or issue. Nominal group technique is similar to a traditional brainstorming session, but it makes people write down ideas on their own, thereby decreasing social loafing and production blocking.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
