Using a sample of 281 scientists and engineers, this study found that the contextural factors of cohesiveness and task certainty were related to perceived R&D team collaborative problem solving. Further it was found that individuals who rated their teams low on collaborative problem solving perceived different collaborative problem solving cohesiveness relationships than those who rated their teams high on the variable. These results are discussed in light of past group dynamics and organizational behavior research and with respect to the management of R&D project groups.
