Abstract

What role do human factors play for the effectiveness of network-enabled operations? This article summarizes the design and results of an empirical research project pursued between February 2006 and February 2007 by the Institute of Technology of Intelligent Systems (ITIS) at the Universität der Bundeswehr München as part of the Research program on implications of edge organizations sponsored by the Center of Edge Power at the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey (California). At issue was the impact of individual characteristics of team members on the collaborative development of shared awareness and the performance of small networked teams. The objective was to contribute to closing gaps in empirical knowledge on the role of human factors in command and control of network-based operations. To this end, data of more than 500 junior officers and officer candidates of the Bundeswehr were collected using psychological tests and a simple computer game requiring teams of four physically separated but networked individuals to cooperatively solve a target allocation problem. The results of the study provide insights that are relevant for composing and training networked teams and underscore the importance of a shared situational picture for developing shared awareness and improving the effectiveness of teams in networked environments.
