Abstrakt

This study applies an agent-based modeling approach to explore how team composition impacts teams’ ability to coordinate. The modeler can explore (1) how the teams’ average rate of behavioral adaptation impacts teams’ ability to coordinate and (2) how the distribution of rates of adaptation within the teams impacts teams’ ability to coordinate. The results from a series of experiments suggest that homogenous teams with moderate rates of adaptation outperform both teams with high rates - and teams with low rates of behavioral adaptation. The results further suggest that intra-team heterogeneity in most cases is detrimental to teams’ ability to coordinate. Discussions of the findings, the contribution to theory, the managerial implications, the limitations, and suggestions for future research finalize the paper.
