Chapter 4: Integrating across sectors and disciplines: transdisciplinary teamwork challenges and strategies
Transdisciplinary teamwork is inherently based on the development and management of diverse groups. With such diversity comes increased challenges related to developing shared goals, coordinating work and maintaining group cohesion. It is critical to understand these challenges as well as strategies for overcoming them. These include allowing extra time for research proposal and team development, starting with a core group of team members experienced in working together to conduct transdisciplinary research and choosing team members carefully to balance needed expertise with the social skills needed to work within diverse teams under stressful conditions.
