Abstract: Most of the existing studies focus on using taxonomic structures to define different project team types; however, little consensus has been reached on the classification. This paper holds that greater consensus could be achieved by using a dimensional scaling approach to describe project teams. Based on the last 35 years of project team research, a conceptual model is presented for describing and differentiating project teams according to seven dimensions: skill differentiation, interdependence, authority differentiation, team size, team longevity, virtuality, and sharedness. In addition, we illustrate the interrelationships among the dimensions. By using this model, we further explain how the 18 types of project teams discussed in the literature could be more effectively presented. Implications of the model as well as its limitations and possible future research directions are also explored.
