This methods-in-action case explores data collection for team research projects. This field study was designed to assess the degree of virtuality of teams in organizations and to determine what, if any, impact virtuality has on team effectiveness. Research methods included the use of an online survey and an innovative, respondent-centric, self-select network approach to collecting data from teams. The unique design, measurement, and data collection considerations associated with research about teams are discussed and illustrated via the case. A checklist for data collection procedures when conducting team research is included.
