Lezlie Wallace at the Cambridge Science Festival: 'How do teams work?'

last modified Mar 15, 2016 11:36 AM

Lezlie Wallace (IDBE cohort 20) delivered her session 'How do teams work?' at the Cambridge Science Festival last night to a packed lecture room.

Teamwork is frequently used in school and work settings. Behind the simple idea of bringing people together to achieve a common goal, many underlying forces are in motion. Lezlie's talk revealed what those forces are, how teams can avoid conflict and work positively together, and why the end result can be greater than the sum of its parts. She used examples from building construction, healthcare, and social sciences to provide basic insights that could be used by any and all teams.

This was the subject of Lezlie's recent IDBE thesis in which she utilised published peer-reviewed research from the building sector and social sciences as well as carrying out a large-scale primary research survey within her company.
