Three training modules were designed to decrease ingroup dynamics in Partially Distributed Teams, which have two or more geographically separated subteams. The action research oriented study included 84 student PDTs with nearly 700 members, working on high-level software requirements. Results indicate that the training improved outcomes in terms of shared identification, trust, awareness, coordination, competence, conflict, and team performance.
