Edit resource

Asencio R, Carter D., DeChurch L., Zaccaro S., Fiore S.. Charting a course for collaboration: A multiteam perspective. Translational Behavioral Medicine. 2012 Dec;2(4):487-494.

The translation of medical research from bench-to-bedside often requires integrated input from multiple expert teams. These collectives can best be understood through the lens of multiteam systems theory. Team charters are a practical tool thought to facilitate team performance through the creation of explicit shared norms for behavior. We extend the current literature on team charters to the multiteam context and make three practical recommendations for multiteam charter content that could facilitate effective communication and leadership processes between teams.
