This paper discusses how teams can be disrupted. More specifically, it discusses the steps that need to be taken in order to fully understand team disruption and design efficient mechanisms to disrupt teams. In order to answer the high-level question of how to disrupt teams, a few other questions need to be tackled first: what is a disrupted team? What are the crucial elements that make a collection of agents function as a team? Can norms, incentives or other mechanisms be used to disrupt these elements? How would we evaluate their efficiency? We first present the ideas of team and team disruption and motivate the need for these concepts to be properly defined. Secondly, we introduce an idea of team-disruption mechanism that we will further investigate. Lastly, we provide a long-term perspective and identify contributions that our research will make in the multi-agents field.
