Greater emphasis is being placed on carrying on exploration and production with smaller, more efficient work teams of geoscientists and petroleum engineers together with land, legal, accounting and administrative staff. The future will judge if the new teams will give a competitive and economic edge to those companies who commit to this change in organizational structure.

This course, "Creating, Managing and Evaluating Multidisciplinary Teams" grew out of a similar and very successful session given at the First Archie Conference in October 1990.

The course is presented by five petroleum business and technical leaders, Paul Ching, Marlan Downey, John Greene, John Masters and myself.This group has a wealth of experience in building, leading, evaluating and rewarding integrated teams of geologists, geophysicists, petrophysicists, petroleum engineers, and computer scientists.

The focus of this one-day course is on the competitive advantages gained by recognizing the role of people and teams dovetailed with improved technology in exploration and development. Emphasis is on several key subjects:
