Abstract

As more and more teams begin working in highly dynamic environments where there are high risks and performance failures can mean disaster, the need for stretching the science of teams to accommodate these "extreme teams" grows. Operating in isolated, confined, and/or extreme environments (ICE) demands effective and efficient team performance. Yet, it is unclear whether the current science of team performance is enough. In other words, we must consider whether we are in need of a paradigm shift with regard to teams or whether the characteristics of these teams is just another moderating variable to consider. This panel brings together a range of experts in team performance and team training to debate this very topic and provide insight into the world of extreme teams.
