Concise description of theory

Organizations need well-prepared teams to perform information systems projects with efficiency and effectiveness.
In such socio-technical systems, project teams’ capability to face and surpass difficulties plays a critical role in organizational reliability.
Hence the relevance of project team resilience, defined as the team’s ability to deal with problems, overcome obstacles, and quickly recover from adverse and possibly harmful situations without collapsing.
The Team Resilience Model explains team resilience in the context of information systems projects, through seven constructs: Trust & Solidarity, Focus on results, Commitment, Management & Accountability, Embrace conflicts, Work conditions, and Skills & Behaviours.
