The formation of temporary task teams necessary to solve complex technical problems is analyzed using a questionnaire. Responses were acquired from 125 high-technology individuals who had participated in temporary task teams. The questionnaire data were analyzed utilizing the chi-square approximation static. Results indicate that the task team which develops team spirit early in its lifetime is more likely to produce a high-quality result. There is a strong indication that the leaders' instructions play a significant role in developing this team spirit.
