Abstract

Teams are increasingly engaged in networked interaction across both team and organizational
boundaries in order to achieve complex, higher order goals. In contrast to theoretical work on goal
pursuit within isolated teams, there is an absence of theoretical models focused on systems composed
of such teams. In response, we propose a predictive model to improve understanding of the nature of
motivational processes leading to performance in interdependent systems of teams. This model is
grounded on goal hierarchy characteristics (goal level, priority, and degree of compatibility) and
functional process interdependence (sequential, reciprocal, intensive) that differentially affect both
goal setting and goal striving processes across component team and multiteam levels. The model also
illustrates how goal choice and goal striving in multiteam systems (MTSs) can be viewed from multilevel
and multiphasic perspectives. We discuss the implications of the model for understanding, researching,
and effectively managing the motivational mechanisms underlying MTSs performance.
