Abstract

The present study examines the mediational role of collective engagement
in the relationship between team cohesion and team creative performance.
A reciprocal process was expected to unfold across creativity task
episodes: (a) team cohesion leads to collective task engagement, which in
turn has a positive effect on team creative performance (perceived team
performance and independently rated creativity), and (b) perceived team
creative performance predicts the development of future team cohesion.
The study relied on a longitudinal three-wave research design through
an organizational simulation exercise, in which 118 project teams (605
individuals) were charged with three creativity tasks. This study advances
collective task engagement as an important mediational process explaining
team performance in creative activities.
