Abstract
This document proposes a modelling approach to address the need for the development of team models. The modelling approach is based on guidelines and principles in addition of sets of building blocks and team functioning elements. To demonstrate the modelling capabilities, four different team decision-making situations are defined. These situations vary in terms of time pressure and complexity of the information to be processed by the teams. According to these four different models produced with the modelling approach, there are differences in terms of building blocks used to represent module architectures between models and the team functioning elements essential for optimal team functioning. With the varying conditions in the environment, a team may switch from one type to another. The comparison between the different models allows the evaluation of the benefits-costs of switching between the different decision-making types. This benefits-costs evaluation is based on building blocks used and team functioning elements included in the models. While the modelling approach still requires more validation studies, it shows interesting potential to identify requirements for training programs development, decision support system design and organizational changes.
