Investigating indirect influences of team composition on team innovation: qualitative evidence from parallel teams in Malaysian organizations
MetadataShow full item record
This article reports qualitative findings on how team composition influences team innovation through ‘team interaction processes’ and ‘emergent states’, which can be described by the ‘team reflexivity’ and ‘team innovation climate’ variables. Given that team composition generally related to ‘bio-demographic’ and ‘task-related’ diversities, this study explores which diversity is related to team reflexivity and innovation climate. Data were collected through semi-structured interviews with members of parallel teams in Malaysian organizations. Content analysis of the interview transcripts revealed that bio-demographic diversity affects only one of the four dimensions of the innovation climate, which then influences team reflexivity. Task-related diversity was found to have a direct influence on team reflexivity, but was not related to any dimension of the innovation climate.

Does Bio-Demographic Diversity influence team innovation through participation safety climate and team reflexivityAbdullah, Maznah; Quaddus, Mohammed (2012)Bio-demographic diversity which refers to age and gender of members in a team, has been frequently identified to influence team innovation directly. As the theories expanded, bio-demographic diversity was suggested to ...
The impact of team design on team innovations for organisational performance: the case of parallel teams in MalaysiaAbdullah, Maznah (2014)Organisational theories emphasised that team design factors do not influence team innovation directly. Therefore, with parallel-team as a research context, this research investigated how the team design influences team ...
