We reviewed team coordination and implicit coordination theories and developed an explicit and implicit team coordination scale. After item revision of a preliminary scale had been performed by 5 experts, there were 30 items in 6 dimensions classified as explicit accountability, explicit predictability, explicit common understanding, implicit accountability, implicit predictability, and implicit common understanding. The reliability and validity of these items were determined with 323 participants, after which exploratory factor analysis resulted in 5 valid dimensions: explicit accountability, implicit accountability, explicit predictability, implicit predictability, and common understanding, comprising 26 items in the multidimensional scale. Future researchers can further explore the applicability of the scale for measuring team coordination in team management practices.
