Despite the gaps in research, a number of knowledge-elicitation methods available from research on individual CTA seem adaptable to a team environment. Some of these have been used in the team performance arena, whereas others have not. This section suggests potential methods for the different types of team knowledge described in the previous section: methods for eliciting pretask team knowledge and dynamic team knowledge. We list the type of team knowledge and discuss previous attempts (if any) to elicit this knowledge. We also suggest other methods that have potential to tap this knowledge. Although a detailed description of all potential methods is beyond the scope of this chapter, we have attempted to include a brief description of a variety of methods.

Using event-based knowledge elicitation, we obtained differences between respondents based on their experience level, providing some empirical evidence for the validity of the approach. The technique requires significant preparation time compared with other approaches, but because expectations can be developed, it may greatly simplify the data analysis. This is especially true if focused information is sough and the analyst plans to collect data from a number of experts.
