Cross-Boundary Work for Effective Teaming

Whether starting a new team or seeking to enhance the effectiveness of your current team, the lessons from the March 2022 Team Science Coffee Break with Dr. Anna Mayo will provide you with insights and tools to apply in your work.

Dr. Anna Mayo is an assistant professor in the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School. Her research explores questions related to what enables effective teamwork, particularly in dynamic organizing contexts, where formal structures that typically support coordination (e.g., clearly defined roles, boundaries around who is “in” the group, and stable relationships via longstanding work groups) are being stripped away. She has studied teamwork in lab settings as well as in finance and health care.
