Abstract:Both team learning and solution-focused teamwork are based on the assumption of growth and development. The aim of this study was to find out what processes contribute to team learning of a healthcare team in a solution-focused context. By means of team interviews and individual surveys that are performed in a solution-focused healthcare organization, the researcher tried to find an answer to the explorative research question. Results reveal that (1) team learning is not only influenced by team processes, (2) the way teams reflect on their learning process can be explained through the learning processes as defined by Decuyper et al. (2010), (3) the team learning process is not only influenced by contributing factors, (4) the factors that contribute to team learning show similarities with solution-focused teamwork, and (5) effective and non-effective teams do not show significant similarities in the way they learn. Further research is needed in order to validate the factors that contribute to team learning in other contexts.
