Content: Team cognition is known to predict team success, but are there conditions under which team cognition is more or less critical to teamwork processes and performance? We explore these conditions with a meta-analytic integration. We find four team characteristics determine the instrumentality of team cognition to teamwork processes and performance: team diversity, team connectivity, team task management, and team stressors. Team cognition most strongly predicts team processes for teams high on diversity, connectivity, team task management, and team stressors. Team cognition most strongly predicts performance when teams are high on connectivity factors, team task management, and team stressors. Implications for future theory and research on teams will be discussed.
