Abstract

Multidisciplinary teams are becoming a common entity in modern organisations. At the
same time, work teams are also becoming increasingly multicultural the world over. Interaction and
interdependence in such complex teams creates the potential for confusion and errors. Consequently,
quality and safety have emerged as prime foci in the delivery of organizational outcomes. A multiple
identity perspective can help to understand and overcome such problems. We review recent research
on identity interactions in work organizations with the intent of improving theoretical precision and
implications for practice, developing a conceptual framework that affords a central role for identity
interactions in the context of complex teams.
