    Measuring adaptive performance at the individual level has been examined by cognitive and organizational psychologists across a range of contexts (e.g., sport, military, health) over the past two decades. This work has had some success and research continues to explore the underpinnings of adaptive cognition to develop training that will improve performance (see Ward, Gore et al., 2017). Attempts to measure, assess and train adaptive performance at the team level, is, however, a relatively nascent area. Prior research has raised concerns that the concept of “adaptivity” is not an empirically robust one (Hutton et al., 2017; Ward et al., 2017). This is further excaerbated at the team level, given the challenges of operationalising and measuring team-based constructs (Burke et al, 2006). Whilst research has examined behavioural markers of effective teams (Salas et al., 2007; Flin, 2008), measuring adaptivity in teams suggests further layers of complexity. The aim of this paper is to review existing measures of team adaptation, with a view to identify an appropriate measure for use in a military context. A validated measure could be used to test training outcomes by providing a before and after assessment of team adaptation, therefore informing the development of effective training.
