WORK TEAM COHESIVENESS: REFINING THE CONCEPTUAL DEFINITION
Keywords:Cohesiveness, Conceptual Definition, Measurement of Cohesiveness
The results of studies on the relationship between work team cohesiveness and team performance are still not conclusive. Inconsistencies in the results, caused by a shifting conceptual definition, have become a problem in cohesiveness measurements. This inconsistency in a conceptual definition exists in the literature and is based on the antecedents or the consequences of team cohesiveness. This study aimed to test the conceptual definition of work-team cohesiveness that had been proposed and to build a measurement for work-team cohesiveness. The respondents of this study were work teams from manufacturing and services companies. The results of this study support the conceptual definition proposed by the author.
