Multilevel influences of team identification and transactive memory on team effectiveness

Multilevel influences of team identification and transactive memory on team effectiveness PurposeThe purpose of this study was to examine the mediating effect of transactive memory between team identification and two outcomes of team effectiveness (i.e. team member satisfaction and team performance).Design/methodology/approachData were obtained from a survey among 502 employees working in 53 teams, and analyzed by Multilevel Structural Equation Modeling.FindingsResults showed that transactive memory partially mediated the relationship between team identification and team effectiveness at the individual level.
