Abstract : A major drawback in the process of developing team training systems is that most methodologies and guidelines for developing training systems are aimed at the individual trainee. A coherent methodology for developing team training systems is still tacking. Consequently, developers of team training systems must often resort to the use of recommendations and guidelines geared to the development of individual-centered training systems. However, these may be insufficient given the different nature and characteristics of teams and team performance. Related to this point is the fact that, regarding complex learning environments developed for team training, it is often not clear which, and how, instructional principles should be applied to actually train the team. In this report, the concept of team performance is being defined (chapter 2), preceded by an introduction in the first chapter. Chapter 3 concisely describes the four phases of instructional systems development viz analysis, design, implementation and evaluation. Based on these generic phases, in chapter 4 an overview is presented of various guidelines for developing team training as described in the literature. These guidelines (each referring to only some of the phases of instructional systems development) are being described and evaluated. On the basis of this review of the literature an inventory has been made regarding the aspects of team training development that remain to be analyzed (chapter 5). Finally, in chapter 6, the direction of future research is indicated.
