Unraveling the diversity-performance link in multicultural teams: meta-analysis of studies on the impact of cultural diversity in teams

Author: Stahl, Günter K. ; Atasu, Atalay ; Kurtulus, MüminINSEAD Area: Organisational Behaviour Series: Working Paper ; 2007/36/OB Publisher: Fontainebleau : INSEAD, 2007.Language: EnglishDescription: 49 p.Type of document: INSEAD Working Paper Online Access: Click here Abstract: We develop a model of convergent and divergent processes to explain the opposing dynamics created by cultural diversity in teams. The results of a meta-analysis of 80 studies with a combined sample size of 9212 teams suggest that cultural diversity lead to process losses by increasing the potential for conflict. However, these losses are partially offset by process gains from increased creativity. Moderator analyses indicate that the effects of cultural diversity vary depending on team size and gender diversity within the team.
