Abstract

The purpose of our study is to enhance understanding of the relationships between conflict management style, team coordination and performance in multi-cultural project team context. We investigate how conflict management can contribute to team effectiveness through the mediation of the level of team coordination, by collecting data from 126 team leaders and supervisors and 378 members nested in different multi-cultural projects in the construction industry. Our results show that contrary to the findings from prior research in other team contexts, an avoiding style of conflict management can have a positive impact on the performance of multi-cultural project teams.
