Enhancing Individual and Team Adaptation: Learning, Regulation, and Development
Steve W. J. Kozlowski
Department of Psychology
Michigan State University

Abstract
A persistent observation across a broad sweep of organizational research is the rapid rate change in the workplace and the corresponding need for complex and adaptive capabilities for individuals, teams, and organizations. Over the last decade or so, my students, colleagues, and I have been examining the concept of performance adaptation - both conceptually and empirically - at multiple levels of the organizational system. In this presentation, I will trace key aspects of this stream of research, examining how we have examined regulatory processes that underlie learning and adaptation, how we have manipulated and enhanced those processes, and how we have extended the paradigm to examine team regulation. Time permitting; I will highlight the evolving directions of this line of work.
