How group members contribute to group performance: Evidence from agent-based simulations

  • Igor Douven (a1)

Abstract

The authors argue that group performance depends on the degree to which group members identify with the group as well as on their degree of differentiation. In this commentary, I discuss results from agent-based simulations, suggesting that group performance depends, at least in part, on features orthogonal to agents' caring about group performance or about how they are perceived by other group members.
