Emergence has received relatively limited direct research attention in the micro and meso disciplines of organizational science (i.e., organizational psychology, organizational behavior, and human resource management). It has largely been treated as latent and assumed, assessed within a limited conceptualization, and examined in a static fashion. This is part of a broader problem in organizational psychology and behavior research (OP/B) that treats team (and other) processes as static constructs. I will discuss emergence as a multilevel process and focus on its point of origin, interaction patterns, and the dynamics of how phenomena emerge. I will discuss how emergent phenomena are typically studied in organizational science and the limitations inherent in the dominant approaches. Once emerged, team processes also exhibit dynamics with respect to the stability of the emerged phenomenon, the form of emergence, and variability in its level. Given these conceptual complexities, investigating emergence is challenging and necessitates new methodologies. I will discuss innovations in research design and measurement that are required to advance understanding of emergence as a process and team processes as dynamic phenomena. I will present some novel approaches and will illustrate them by highlighting my current research.
