Abstract

"This chapter aims to discuss what it takes to make people or groups that
do not know each other previously establish effective cooperation during unforeseen
events. The focus is on the formation process of “swift trust”, and the potential
prerequisites and outcomes of such trust, seen as an alternative to traditional,
history-based trust approaches that dominate the research literature of today. “Swift
trust” may enable effective cooperation even among people that are unfamiliar with
each other. This is seen as a relevant perspective because such temporal groups often
handle unforeseen and critical events. Given the limited amount of research on “swift
trust”, the chapter also aims to identify future research questions. In the analysis, I
utilize different theoretical perspectives, including the social sciences, experimental
psychology and leadership, and seek to conclude the investigation by identifying different
leadership strategies that may stimulate the formation of “swift trust”."
