Summary
  • Diversity in Work Teams: Research Paradigms for a Changing Workplace explores how diversity affects one of the most popular management strategies used in business today: the formation of employee work teams. Work teams ideally operate to maximize flexibility, creativity, and productivity in a business environment. Frustrating this effort, however, is the increasing level of diversity found in the American workplace, which often heightens the difficulty of getting people to work together effectively. The authors of this volume argue that organizations must learn to understand and adjust to workplace diversity, because many of the specific assets and liabilities of work teams arise directly out of the diverse talents and perspectives of teams' individual members
  • Volume editors Susan E. Jackson and Marian N. Ruderman have gathered the authors here to explore how the amount and type of diversity in teams shapes both internal team dynamics and team outcomes. The authors provide perspectives on how diversity affects team dynamics from a variety of disciplines: psychology, sociology, and management. Diversity in Work Teams moves beyond the traditional concept of diversity, which typically focuses on ethnicity, gender, and age, to include psychological differences (values and beliefs) and organizational differences (hierarchical level and occupation). This volume provides an overview of this important emerging field and is a vital reference source on the topic
