In other words, the less time team members spent interacting with each other, the more successful the team was as a whole. "Functional specialization within a team and well-guided leadership could be important predictors of timely detection and mitigation of ongoing cyber attacks," they write.
Usually, if a situation reaches the point where social interaction is required to adjust activity, it means things have gone objectively wrong already.
==> shocking truth from the comments : "the less time you spend in meetings and talking about what you're doing, the more things you can get done!" ;-)
==> NB : this is NOT AT ALL about lone geniuses (no team where everybody works on his own can be efficient), it's about self-organizing teams.
