Connectivity, the control parameter in a nonlinear dynamics model of team performance is
mathematically linked to the ratio of positivity to negativity (P/N) in team interaction. By
knowing the P/N ratio it is possible to run the nonlinear dynamics model that will portray
what types of dynamics are possible for a team. These dynamics are of three types: point
attractor, limit cycle, and complexor (complex order, or “chaotic” in the mathematical
sense). Low performance teams end up in point attractor dynamics, medium perfomance
teams in limit cycle dynamics, and high performance teams in complexor dynamics.
