Abstract

Task conflict plays an important role as predictor of team performance, but the question of how or why task conflict affects performance still remains open. Many researchers argue that it depends on cooperation between team members whether task conflict is beneficial or harmful, as cooperation is a crucial process through which a team can improve its performance. Additionally, studies investigating the role of mediating variables found strong support for clarifying the input-process-output (IPO) model of team effectiveness, yet, the relevance of cooperation has never been tested explicitly in such way. In this paper, we thus intend to test the mediating role of cooperation between task conflict and team performance using a sample of 92 team-task observations. We split the sample into decision-choice and creative-generating tasks in order to see whether the outcome of this mediating chain is the same for different task types. The results contribute to the understanding of the black box of team processes.
