Download our article about the ways in which technology is unlocking the science of teamwork

We all know that technology is giving us the power to do so much we never dreamt possible with the internet of things, big data, robotics, smart phones, AI, VR, and it’s no different in this studying of teams. People have been observing and studying teams for a long time, and trying to work out how to do great teamwork, and what sets high performance teams apart from the rest. I’d even go so far as to now call this observation of how teams work a science. Take for example the ‘wearable tech’ of the sociometric badge; a small device that measures your interactions and patterns of communication across your team. He has used them to study hundreds of people and teams, crunching big data and numbers to ascertain what makes the difference in how people in teams interact and the results are startling.
