In this chapter, we argue that the task is an important influence for teams and that task aspects should be more explicitly, and more specifically, included in the study of team processes and team performance. Using a cardiopulmonary resuscitation task as an example, we show how an adaptation of hierarchical task analyses that assesses task requirements (taskwork) and coordination requirements (teamwork) can be useful in identifying a task's goals and sub-goals, defining qualifiers of good goal attainment, identying coordination requirements, and developing hypotheses about which teamwork and coordination behaviour should specifically be related to the performance of different aspects of complex tasks. Our argument is based on concepts that extend the general input-process-output model of groups. Keywords: Cardiac Arrest Task Analysis Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Cardiac Massage Coordination Behaviour
