Abstract In this research, we view knowledge-worker teams as open systems that are directly affected by changes in the external environment. Drawing on the strategic contingency perspective of power, we propose and demonstrate that in the face of a turbulent technological environment, knowledge-worker teams should engage in two team processes, namely, de-dependence on established team experts and new knowledge acquisition, to achieve high innovation performance. We conducted two field studies to...

In this paper, we identify the basis of leader–member exchange (LMX) differentiation as a crucial factor influencing the relationship between LMX differentiation and work group outcomes.

We hypothesize that LMX differentiation will be less negatively related to intragroup relational quality and group proactiv...

We hypothesize a significant positive relationship between cultural learning and expatriates’ cross-cultural job creativity, and that this relationship will be enhanced by domain learning and the cultural distance between the host and home countries. Moreover, we propose that expatriates wit...

ABSTRACTIn this research, we examine the phenomenon of egocentric reciprocity, where individuals protect self-interest by adopting an eye-for-an-eye strategy in negatively imbalanced exchanges, and by taking advantage of overly generous treatment in positively imbalanced exchanges. We conducted two experiments using a modified ultimatum game examining attitudinal and behavioral responses to imbalanced exchanges. The experiments allowed us to explore the moderating role of relational closeness (i...

It was not until the second year that Wahaha made remarkable profits, by producing nutritional drinks. Zong chose the name ‘Wahaha’ for his company; the literal translation is ‘laughing child’, which means a happy child. Wahaha initial...
