Abstract:

Team design characteristics are important antecedents in Input-Process-Outcome models. The aim of this study was to explore the relationships among traditional task characteristics (task meaningfulness, autonomy, and feedback), team performance, and team member satisfaction within the same framework. We collected data from 382 members and 100 managers of 100 teams. The results of structural equation analysis partly supported our theoretical framework. Team member satisfaction mediated the effects of task autonomy and feedback on the team performance. Task meaningfulness had a directly positive effect on team performance. These results draw attention to the different effects of the aspects of traditional task characteristics and the satisfaction-performance relationship in a team context.
