Teamology is a method to create creative project team established by Prof. Wilde. It is based on Questionnaire of Briggs & Myers identification of type (MBTI) called Personal Theory, whose base is on Jung’s Type Theory. From MBTI, Prof. Wilde makes formula to make balance project team both in Information Collection domain and Decision-Making domain. He has published his experiences in team construction and published a book as Teamology in 2008. In this case study, we investigate the effectiveness of balanced project teams and try to see how it works. We carried out questionnaire to more than 120 employees in Maruzen Industry, and make different types of teams and checked the difference of creativity. From the results, we have proven that balanced team showed the best performance. We also carried out the best way of questionnaire, and found out Prof. Wilde’s questionnaire shows the best identification of type.
