dc.description.abstractThrough the macrocognitive event analysis of this complex logistical experiment, twelve hour long transcripts were simplified to 101 distinct events. These macrocognitive events were categorized as Assuming, Eliminating, Delaying Commitment, or Dismissing and each stemmed from the macrocognitive function model established by Patterson et al. The concept of cognitive event pattern tracking was applied in order to predict team performance. The final model created could not, however, account for the variability in team performance due to the small sample size. Macrocognitive event tracing, however, provided a more robust data management system for team collaboration which revealed significant overlap between the macrocognitive functions and a dominance hierarchy for the analysts. This research should have useful applications in any arena where teams collaborate to solve a complex problem.en_US
