Interpretation (alpha = 0.88)[edit | edit source]

Description[edit | edit source]

Based on learning theory and multilevel thinking, measures were developed and validated for four types of team learning processes, as “team learning originates in individual intuition, is amplified through interpretation and integration, and manifests itself at the team level via the codification of collective cognition and action”.

Definition[edit | edit source]

Interpretation is defined as “the explaining, through words and/or actions, of an insight or idea to one’s self and to others” (Crossan et al., 1999, p. 525).

Items[edit | edit source]

  • In our team, we had a very good level of information and knowledge sharing. (0.73, 0.86)
  • In our team, we managed to develop a common picture/idea of the most critical problems and how they could be resolved. (0.84, 0.94)
  • In our team, we managed to have a productive and creative dialogue for project-related issues. (0.60, 0.90)

Note: Different factor loadings were reported for the within (individual) level and the between (team) level.
