Motivation. Uncertainty plays a major role in decision making and problem solving tasks in naturalistic environments and has received much interest across research disciplines. Research Approach. This poster provides a multi-disciplinary review of uncertainty. Findings/Design. Across disciplines, a view of uncertainty as an affective experience and as a resource that is managed and not always reduced has emerged. A framework rooted in group communication theory and emotion regulation is presented that outlines this process. Research limitations/Implications. Implications of this framework suggest that emotion regulation may be as important as the cognitive work performed by experts. However, these implications are in need of validation in applied contexts. Originality/Value. To date, there has been little cross-fertilization of ideas between the NDM and group communication communities of practice even though they investigate similar phenomenon. Take away message. Understanding complex phenomenon such as macrocognition in teams can be advanced by considering multi-disciplinary perspectives.
