The planned research grows out of the existing literature on teams, the PIs’ extensive research on team collaborationand communication in many kinds of organizations, and our preliminary field work in a shock trauma hospital. Fromthis background, we have developed an initial theoretical framework for understanding the intersecting paths alongwhich work and team members flow in a large scale collaboration. We have adopted the concept of trajectories torefer to the sequence of activities and paths through which people, resources, and teams move. In the complexhospital environment, patient, resource, and staff trajectories must interweave or intersect in specific ways forspecific purposes. Coordinating multiple trajectories of events and activities requires the orchestration of thesetrajectories so that they are coupled or decoupled as necessary. Our research attempts to understand how interruptionstrategies and mechanisms, people’s awareness of the flow of trajectories, and social factors, especially leadershipand social differences, affect the management of trajectories. We will develop and evaluate technology to improvethe management of trajectories. We propose field studies of interruption and trajectory awareness in a shock traumahospital, laboratory studies of how people manage and lead divergent task and team trajectories in different criticalenvironments, and development of technology for providing people with tools for mobile awareness of the status ofrelevant trajectories, for remote access to public collaborative artifacts and databases (such as operating roomschedules), and for obtaining more relevant visual and other information about activities along various trajectories.The PIs have worked together, and bring relevant experience and disciplines to the project.
