ABSTRACT

Disaster and crisis responses must be approached at the organizational level, not at the individual level, and thus promoting team effectiveness is critical in disaster management. The Team Assessment and Diagnostic Instrument (TADI) measures team characteristics associated with team effectiveness such as information sharing and effective communication. The purpose of this study was to validate the Korean version of TADI for a sample of disaster response teams and develop a brief form. Factor analysis revealed a single factor for the 42-item TADI which had good reliability and validity. A brief version of TADI, which was developed based on the results of the factor analysis, consisted of only 10 items but its reliability and validity were as comparable as the full version. The findings of the study indicated that both the full and brief versions of the Team Assessment and Diagnostic Instrument (TADI) are valid and reliable instruments for disaster response team assessment in Korea.
