  • Explaining how group model building supports enduring agreement
    • Authors: Rodney James Scott
      Pages: 783 - 806
      Abstract: System dynamics models are typically used to simulate the behaviour of the problem system under discussion environment, to help understand and solve complex problems. Group model building is a social process for including client groups in the system dynamics modelling process. Recent evidence suggests group model building is useful in supporting durable group decisions by supporting the mental models of participants to become more aligned. There have been several mechanisms proposed to explain these effects. This paper creates a combined model that links the five best-supported mechanisms. The combined model suggests five core conditions of group model building that contributes to its success: completing a structured task, producing a tangible artefact, representing system complexity, the portrayal of causal links, and easy modification or transformation of the artefact by participants. Practitioners are encouraged to use group decision approaches that integrate these conditions.

  • When and how knowledge sharing benefits team creativity: The importance of
           cognitive team diversity
    • Authors: Chenghao Men; Patrick S W Fong, Jinlian Luo, Jing Zhong, Weiwei Huo
      Pages: 807 - 824
      Abstract: In this paper, we explored the role of knowledge sharing on team creativity through absorptive capacity and knowledge integration, and tested the condition under which knowledge sharing is positively related to absorptive capacity and knowledge integration. We tested our hypotheses with a sample of 86 knowledge worker teams involving 381 employees and employers in China. Results demonstrate that knowledge sharing was positively related to team creativity, fully mediated by both absorptive capacity and knowledge integration. In addition, cognitive team diversity played a moderating role in the relationship between knowledge sharing and absorptive capacity, as well as in the relationship between knowledge sharing and knowledge integration. Theoretical and practical implications of these findings on knowledge management and team creativity are discussed.

  • Team goal orientation composition, team efficacy, and team performance:
           The separate roles of team leader and members
    • Authors: Chiung-Yi Huang; Jia-Chi Huang, Yuhsuan Chang
      Pages: 825 - 843
      Abstract: This study aims to examine team goal orientation composition regarding the different roles of a leader’s and team members’ collective goal orientation, and the effects of these on team outcomes. Data included 268 respondents from 64 teams. Results showed team members’ learning goal orientation has positive effect on team performance, mediated by team efficacy. Further, for the role of team leader, the results also revealed the same pattern. Study also showed a leader’s performance goal orientation has negatively related on team performance, mediated by team efficacy. Finally, taking both roles simultaneously, study indicated the interaction between a leader’s and members’ performance goal orientation has negatively related to team efficacy, and the interaction between a leader’s and members’ learning goal orientation has negatively related to team performance. This research contributes to the existing goal orientation theory by taking the different roles of team leader and members into consideration.

  • The effect of team emotional intelligence on team process and
    • Authors: Changyu Lee; Chi-Sum Wong
      Pages: 844 - 859
      Abstract: Team emotional intelligence is expected to have a significant impact on intrateam conflict and team effectiveness. However, to date, there has been a dearth of empirical evidence of this link. Taking a comprehensive approach, our study contributes to the literature on intrateam conflict and team emotional intelligence. Data collected from 79 teams in South Korean companies reveal that team emotional intelligence is negatively related to team process (i.e., task conflict and relationship conflict) and positively related to team effectiveness (i.e., team performance, innovation, and cohesion). In addition, team emotional intelligence has a moderating effect on decoupling task conflict and relationship conflict. Our findings also indicate that team emotional intelligence decreases the negative effects of task conflict on team effectiveness, and of relationship conflict on team cohesion. We conclude this study with a discussion of limitations and implications for future research.

  • How ambidextrous organizational culture affects job performance: A
           multilevel study of the mediating effect of psychological capital
    • Authors: Jee Young Lee; Yumi Seo, Wonho Jeung, Joon-ho Kim
      Pages: 860 - 875
      Abstract: Ambidexterity organization, which is defined as the ability of an organization to simultaneously pursues exploration and exploitation, has received attention by researchers who have examined its beneficial effect on organizational performance and success. This study attempted to examine the positive effect of ambidextrous organization culture (AOC), which is regarded as the core characteristic of ambidextrous organizations by using a multilevel model. Specifically, this study examined the effects of AOC on members’ job performance and the mediating role of psychological capital in the relationship between AOC and job performance. The results indicated that AOC had a significantly positive relationship with job performance even after controlling various organizational and individual variables. Moreover, we found that psychological capital fully mediated the relationship between AOC and members’ job performance. This study provides theoretical contributions by empirically examining the positive effect and mechanism of AOC. Furthermore, this study offers practical implications in how practitioners can manage their organizational culture, by helping shape the direction of organizational culture management.

  • The role of team reflexivity as a mediator between project management
           skills, task familiarity, procedural justice, and product performance
    • Authors: Wann-Yih Wu; Adriana Amaya Rivas, Yen-Chun Chen
      Pages: 876 - 895
      Abstract: Even though the importance of team reflexivity in new product development (NPD) has been well noted in the literature, little attention has been paid to its determinants. Based on the resource-based view, this study proposes that project management skills, task familiarity, and procedural justice are useful to improve team reflexivity. As such, this study also examines the influences that these antecedents and team reflexivity have on NPD. A research framework is proposed along with 10 major hypotheses. To test these, data were collected from 186 team members from NPD teams in Taiwanese high-tech firms, and the partial least square results of confirm that all three of the proposed antecedents have direct impacts on team reflexivity and NPD performance. Task familiarity had the highest mediation effect on the influence of project management skills on NPD performance, followed by team reflexivity and procedural justice. Since previous studies largely ignored the effects of antecedents on team reflexivity and NPD performance, this study provides useful insights for both academics and practitioners.

  • The impact of gender diversity on performance: The moderating role of
           industry, alliance network, and family-friendly policies – Evidence from
    • Authors: Kwang Bin Bae; Sheryl Skaggs
      Pages: 896 - 913
      Abstract: This study analyzes the effects of gender diversity in management on organizational performance using Korea Workplace Panel Survey data for 2005, 2007, and 2009. Few studies have examined this relationship for firms outside the United States, particularly in Asian countries. Similar to previous research, our findings show that gender diversity in management has a U-shaped relationship with firm productivity. Second, the curvilinear relationship between gender diversity in management and firm productivity is stronger in service-oriented industries relative to manufacturing industries, with the highest level of employee productivity within homogeneous management groups. Third, we include a measure of workplace family-friendly policies to moderate the relationship between gender diversity in management and organizational performance. We find that the U-shaped pattern also holds in firms with a large number of family-friendly policies. This suggests that gender diversity in management has considerable influence on the productivity of Korean firms through interactions with family-friendly policies.

  • The curvilinear relationship between career plateauing and organizational
           citizenship behavior
    • Authors: Gi R. Song; Kyoung S. Kim, Min W. Lee
      Pages: 914 - 935
      Abstract: According to social exchange theory, the motivation for organizational citizenship behavior can be understood with the help of the frameworks of obligation to reciprocate and expected reciprocity. This study predicts that the true motivation for organizational citizenship behavior could be differentiated conditional on the career plateau. These relationships predict the existence of a U-shaped nonlinear relationship between the career plateau and organizational citizenship behavior. In addition to exploring this relationship, the study attempted to discover the effect of organizational commitment and job involvement on the relationship. As a result, a U-shaped curvilinear relationship is applied between career plateau and four dimensions of organizational citizenship behavior except civic virtue. Commitment and involvement show unexpected moderating effects on those curved relationships.
