Abstract
In the ever-evolving field of technology, teamwork is as important than ever to stay ahead of the competition. The need for new and fast ways to increase team efficiency is growing within the technology sector. With research showing that a big contributor to team efficiency is group efficacy, the perception that your team has what it takes to handle any coming situations, this research aims to gain more knowledge about the effect of group efficacy awareness. With group efficacy closely related to efficiency, is it possible to raise group efficacy by teaching and helping teams gain more knowledge about their own team abilities? An interactive workshop regarding group efficacy concepts were created and the level of perceived group efficacy... (More)
In the ever-evolving field of technology, teamwork is as important than ever to stay ahead of the competition. The need for new and fast ways to increase team efficiency is growing within the technology sector. With research showing that a big contributor to team efficiency is group efficacy, the perception that your team has what it takes to handle any coming situations, this research aims to gain more knowledge about the effect of group efficacy awareness. With group efficacy closely related to efficiency, is it possible to raise group efficacy by teaching and helping teams gain more knowledge about their own team abilities? An interactive workshop regarding group efficacy concepts were created and the level of perceived group efficacy was measured within already established teams both before and after using a repeated measure survey. Results showed an increase in the participants perceived group efficacy, with a small but significant effect size. This showed a positive outcome for the research, and the effect of awareness seems enough to make a significant change in the participants belief that the team has what it takes. This, in turn, will hopefully lead to a quick and effective way to increase efficiency within teams that work in fields where group efficacy is not a common topic or practice. (Less)
