Abstract:The current dissertation explores how inter-team collaboration affects team-level outcomes, specifically team knowledge creation and group averaged turnover intention. Using a sample of 398 individuals in 55 teams from two multidisciplinary research institutes in a large public university, the current study suggests that the level of inter-team collaboration has a dual effect on team outcomes, such that it has a positive association with team-level knowledge creation as well as increasing turnover intention. Also, I argue that the level of interdisciplinarity as a contextual factor that affects the relationship between team collaboration and both knowledge creation and turnover intention, such that, as the level of interdisciplinarity increases, the positive impact of inter-team collaboration on knowledge creation/turnover intention will be strengthened. Finally, I suggest two mediators (i.e., innovation climate and job interdependence) to investigate the black box of the relationship between inter-team collaboration and team outcomes.
