|Abstract:||Twenty-six multidisciplinary student design teams (n = 128) each built a robot
that had to perform a specific task in a design contest. For these teams, an
input–process–output framework of team member personality (input), generic
and specific design behaviors (process), and contest result and supervisor and
team member ratings of the design (output) was researched using correlations.
Agreeableness and conscientiousness were positively related to generic design
behaviors in both the concept and elaboration phase of the design process.
Generic design behaviors were positively related to contest result and team
member ratings of the design’s technical realization. The conclusions hold
implications for design research (multiple process and outcome measures are
needed) and practice (attention for personality differences in teams and particular design behaviors in specific design phases foster design outcomes).
