Inspection, maintenance, and repair (IMR) operations of the subsea infrastructure off Norway’s coast are performed from specialized vessels by multiteam systems. A case study shows how leadership is organized and practiced to coordinate interdependencies, and to cope with the risks inherent in this type of complex and tightly coupled operation. Leadership redundancy is proposed as a mechanism that can contribute to the smooth and safe functioning of a multiteam system operating in a volatile environment.
