A team approach to scientific research can lead to groundbreaking results. It can also end with colleagues never working together again.

A new book by ASU Public Affairs Professor Barry Bozeman and co-author Jan Youtie examines the impact of a team approach to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics research.

In "The Strength in Numbers: The New Science of Team Science," Bozeman and Youti document the rewards of a collaborative approach and the challenges researchers face. More importantly, they identify solutions to help scientists overcome those obstacles.

Bozeman, an Arizona Centennial Professor of Public Management and Technology Policy and director of the ASU Center of Organizational Research and Design in the School of Public Affairs, sat down to talk about his new book.
