Abstract and Keywords
This chapter posits that team reflection, which the authors conceive as the collective evaluation of prior team activities, is a major driver for the development and attainment of expertise in teams. To develop its argument, the chapter first reviews previous team reflection research (self-regulatory team reflection, as for example team reflexivity, and guided team reflection approaches, as for example team debriefings) and elaborates the mechanisms that link team reflection to expertise in teams. Secondly, the chapter discusses multiple catalysts of team reflection. Finally, the chapter elaborates two important shortcomings of previous team reflection research (level of analysis, and short- and long-term consequences) that should be further addressed by future studies in order to deepen our understanding of the effects of team reflection on the development of expertise in teams.
