This study aims to identify the precursors of team resilience during challenging and disruptive operating conditions. In order to provide a complete picture of team resilience, a comprehensive framework was established comprising a range of antecedent and outcome variables of resilience. A total of 164 participants, divided into 21 teams of 7-9 members each, took part in a simulation that replicated challenging operational conditions and tested team resilience. Data included teams’ objective performance measures and self-assessments of their performance and collective behaviour. Initial findings suggested high levels of correlations between the objective performance measures and team resilience. Preliminary analysis reveals strong correlations between the precursor variables and team resilience. Mixed methods analysis will be used for the further analysis and interpretation of the data.
