Team reward attitude: construct development and initial validation
journal contributionposted on 2001-12-01, 00:00 authored by Jason Shaw, M K Duffy, E M Stark
This paper reports the development of a team reward attitude construct and intial validation of a measure in a longitudinal study of team members (initial n = 566). Confirmatory factor analysis results provide support for a revised 9-item scale in two different time periods separated by four months. The measure was positively related to other team-related attitudes (preference for group work and perceived efficacy of teams) and locus of control, and negatively related to a proxy for ability. Implications of the research and future research directions are addressed.
