Assistant Professor
Industrial-Organizational Program

Dr. Neal Outland came from DePaul University in Chicago where he studied what and how teams are successful in the workplace. His research answers questions concerning the necessary qualities of individual team members and the optimal patterns of interaction for teams to follow for superior performance. He has two main research streams: one in which he explores how teams dynamically interact and perform in complex and dynamic environments such as sports; and another where he uses computer simulated teams as analogies to real human teams in a variety of contexts.
