Abstract : The experiment sought to manipulate two communication variables. One manipulation entailed the regulation of intrateam communication, while the other manipulation involved the alteration of team development or team learning by the scheduling of communication regulations. A split plot factorial analysis revealed that there was a significant difference between groups at level one of the within group variable. It was concluded that groups receiving the communication schedule where the first condition was maximum communication performed in a superior manner. The superior performance may have resulted from the enhancement of team learning afforded by the initial freedom to communicate, as opposed to initial restriction of communication. (Author)
