A successful project obviously relies on technical skills and theoretical knowledge that all the members of the team should have.
Whether they are parts of working teams, managing teams, transverse teams, or project teams, what matters more than just knowledge, are collaborators personal qualities. This impacts both the group’s efficiency and its members’ well-being.
This is the reason why Effency conducted a research work in cognitive sciences, within its partnership with Cog’X.
Independently of skills, there are two elements that play a major role in the success of collective work. Those are the good dissemination of ideas among the group, and the implication of all members in a given task. Many research works in cognitive sciences showed that personality traits, which, if they’re shared with the group members, may participate actively to the achievement of these two collaborative functions.
