The study of teamwork has been fragmented through the years, and the findings are generally unable to be used practically This article argues that it is possible to boil down what researchers know about teamwork into five core components that the authors submit as the "Big Five" in teamwork. The core components of teamwork include team leadership, mutual performance monitoring, backup behavior adaptability, and team orientation. Furthermore, the authors examine how these core components require supporting coordinating mechanisms (e.g., shared mental modes, closed-loop communication, and mutual trust) and vary in their importance during the life of the team and the team task. Finally, the authors submit a set of propositions for future research.
