Challenges and barriers in virtual teams: a literature review
Small and large teams are different in nature. Small teams ask questions and disrupt existing theories. Large teams answer questions and stabilize established paradigms. ONE of the most universal trends in science and technology today is the growth of large teams in all areas, as solitary researchers and small teams diminish in prevalence. Increases in team size have been attributed to the specialization of scientific activities, improvements in communication technology, or the complexity of modern problems that require interdisciplinary solution. This shift in team sizes raises the question of whether and how the character of the science and technology produced by large differs from that of small teams.
One of the most universal shifts in the innovation sector in recent years has been the growth of large teams in all areas of research and development, while solitary inventors, researchers, and small teams have all been on the decline. But do large and small teams differ by type of innovation? They examined millions of papers, patents, and software projects, and found that while large teams do indeed advance and develop science, small teams are critical for disrupting it—a finding with broad implications for science and innovation. In , the Laser Interferometre Gravitational-Wave Observatory LIGO project finally detected what it was built to: gravitational waves—ripples in the fabric of space and time—caused by the collision of two black holes. Indeed, one of the most universal shifts in the innovation sector in recent years has been the growth of large teams in all areas of research and development, while solitary inventors, researchers, and small teams have all been on the decline. We examined millions of papers, patents, and software projects, summarizing our insights in a paper published in Nature. In short, we found that while large teams do indeed advance and develop science, small teams are critical for disrupting it—a finding with broad implications for science and innovation.

A new study finds that small teams of researchers do more innovative work than large teams do. Research shows that hot streaks are a fact in creative fields. Even more surprising: They can happen at any point, even late career. We derive a mechanistic model for the citation dynamics of individual papers, allowing us to collapse the citation histories of papers from different journals and disciplines into a single curve, indicating that all papers tend to follow the same universal temporal pattern. We developed a quantitative model of impact, based on an element of randomness, productivity, and a factor Q that is particular to each scientist and remains constant during the scientist's career. But we may be able to forecast who is more likely to have the greatest impact.
Disruption differences between small and large teams magnify with impact (Fig. 3A). Small teams producing high-impact papers are most disruptive, and large.
Small Teams Disrupt
In today's science and business worlds, it's increasingly common to hear that solving big problems requires a big team. But a new analysis of more than 65 million papers, patents and software projects found that smaller teams produce much more disruptive and innovative research. In a new paper published by Nature , University of Chicago researchers examined 60 years of publications and found that smaller teams were far more likely to introduce new ideas to science and technology, while larger teams more often developed and consolidated existing knowledge. While both large and small teams are essential for scientific progress, the findings suggest that recent trends in research policy and funding toward big teams should be reassessed.
Evans 1 2 6. Advocates of team science have claimed that a shift to larger teams in science and technology fulfils the essential function of solving problems in modern society that are complex and which require interdisciplinary solutions Although much has been demonstrated about the professional and career benefits of team size for team members 9 , there is little evidence that supports the notion that larger teams are optimized for knowledge discovery and technological invention 9. Experimental and observational research on groups reveals that individuals in large groups think and act differently--they generate fewer ideas 10,11 , recall less learned information 12 , reject external perspectives more often 13 and tend to neutralize each other's viewpoints Small and large teams may also differ in their response to the risks associated with innovation.
Сьюзан на какое-то время забыла про Хейла. Она молила Бога, чтобы Стратмору звонил Дэвид. Скажи мне скорей, что с ним все в порядке, - думала. - Скажи, что он нашел кольцо. Но коммандер поймал ее взгляд и нахмурился.
Он попытался сделать из апельсиновой кожуры джем, но чтобы можно было взять его в рот, в него пришлось добавить огромное количество сахара. Так появился апельсиновый мармелад. Халохот пробирался между деревьями с пистолетом в руке. Деревья были очень старыми, с высокими голыми стволами. Даже до нижних веток было не достать, а за неширокими стволами невозможно спрятаться.
Тело Грега Хейла растворилось в темноте, и Сьюзан, инстинктивно поджав ноги, прикрылась пиджаком Стратмора. В шифровалке никогда еще не было так тихо, здесь всегда слышался гул генераторов. Теперь все умолкло, так что можно было различить облегченный вздох раненого чудовища - ТРАНСТЕКСТА, постепенно стихающее шипение и посвистывание, сопутствующие медленному охлаждению. Сьюзан закрыла глаза и начала молиться за Дэвида. Ее молитва была проста: она просила Бога защитить любимого человека.
Провода от принтера лежали. Должно быть, я оставила беретту на диване, - подумала. Кровь, вытекающая из головы, в голубоватом свечении казалась черной. На полу возле тела Хейла лежал листок бумаги.
Он знал, что задумал Чатрукьян. Отключение ТРАНСТЕКСТА было логичным шагом в случае возникновения чрезвычайной ситуации, а ведь тот был уверен, что в машину проник вирус.
