Self-Managing Work Teams: Enhancing Organizational Innovativeness
In this article, we explore the relationship between self-managed work teams and innovative behaviors they demonstrate from the socio-technical, social learning, and cognitive perspectives. Our specific argument is that self-managed work teams foster greater autonomy, increase communication among team members, and intensify their commitment to the team and the organization, which in turn enhances innovative behaviors in such teams. Propositions that may be of use to both the theoretician and the practitioner are presented. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
