Visualizations of longitudinal team communication using three different techniques are provided:  (1) recurrence plots depict cycles within communication topics discussed by teams, (2) network pictographs by quartile illustrate how frequently topics are discussed and shifts among topics occurred, and (3) dendrograms by quartile represent sequences within the communication topics. Complete descriptions of the study design, as well as further detail about the visualization techniques, including data operationalizations employed with each technique, and how the corresponding analyses were conducted can be found in McComb and Kennedy (forthcoming).

Portions of this research were supported in part by the Innovations in Organizations program of the National Science Foundation and the Collaboration and Knowledge Interoperability program of the Office of Naval Research.
