Dissertation titleRedefining Multidisciplinary Teams: An Institutional Approach
Relying on institutional theory, I develop a multilevel model of the effects of two potential barriers on team member performance in multidisciplinary teams:
institutional embeddedness, or the extent to which an individual is cognitively, affectively and normatively influenced by her discipline, and
institutional hierarchy, or the degree of perceived status differences among disciplines in the team. I test the model using a data set from a large national research institute in South Korea.
