Purpose - Whereas motivation and coordination losses in teams have been investigated for quite some time, systematic research on performance gains in teams (often called "synergetic effects") only emerged recently. The purpose of the present paper is to clarify the concept of process gains (or synergy) in teams, and to introduce recent findings from basic psychology that can be very valuable for the management of high performing teams.
