Doug Twitchell

Doug Twitchell, associate professor in the Department of Information Technology and Supply Chain Management, co-authored the article “Too Busy to Be Manipulated: How Multitasking with Technology Improves Deception Detection in Collaborative Teamwork” in the Journal of Management Information Systems.

Twitchell and the additional authors examine how deception can be a staple among work teams. According to the article’s abstract, their research “develops a foundation for a nuanced theoretical understanding of deception detection under conditions” that exist in technology-driven business environments. Through studies that used collaborative games that depicted ┬ávirtual group environments, the results provide managers with new insights into effective multitasking tactics and collaborative processes for their teams.
