Research in CSE is inherently collaborative, bringing together people whose combined skills span across mathematics, computer science, and domain areas of science and engineering. Increasingly prevalent, as CSE teams work toward next-generation challenges in predictive science, are aggregate teams, where software is a primary means of collaboration.This 90-minute break-out session presented at the Department of Energy ECP Annual Meeting introduces the idea of developing shared consciousness, empowered execution, and enabling leadership among and within teams as important steps on the path toward scaling the productivity of small teams to a large networked aggregate team, or a team of teams (McChrystal et al., 2015). We provide information to help foster teamwork in teams of all sizes, leveraging people's diverse skills in pursuit of a common goal.
