CHAPTER IIIRESEARCH METHODS
Source of CFT Members
Palm Beach = 7
Broward = 15
Miami-Dade = 16
Data Producing Sample
Validity and Reliability of the Measurement Scales
What are CFT members’ actual similarity-dissimilarity, perceived similarity-dissimilarity, perceived group openness to diversity, team cohesion, team outcome effectiveness, characteristics of their organizations, and organizational performance?
(Previous studies had 83% female respondents)
Are there differences in CFT members’
perceived similarity-dissimilarity, perceived group openness to diversity, team cohesion, team outcome effectiveness, characteristics of their organizations, and performance of their organizations according to actual similarity-dissimilarity?
Are there differences in CFT members’ actualsimilarity-dissimilarity, perceived similarity-dissimilarity, perceived group openness to diversity, team cohesion, team outcome effectiveness, and performance of their organizations according to organizational characteristics of hospitals with existing CFTs in south Florida?
