Software development often involves teams of developers interacting with each other to develop a software product or service. Given that individuals in the same team may have varying expertise and knowledge, it is believed that proper management of Transactive Memory System (TMS) or group knowledge within a team is more likely to ensure optimum team performance. In this study, we test this hypothesis by using an experiment in which we compare the performance of different teams with different TMS in solving the same software related problems. Our results indicate it is under certain conditions, that teams with higher TMS will usually achieve better performance than teams with lower TMS.
