Nasta, Luigi, Pirolo, Luca, & Wikstrom, Patrik (2016) Job-related diversity and team performance: An empirical analysis of the US music industry. In World Media Economics and Management Conference (WMEMC 2016), 2-6 May 2016, New York, N.Y.


A significant amount of research has been carried out to investigate the existing bonds between team characteristics and team outcomes in contexts of social creativity. Specifically, how work group diversity affects its performance is of great relevance but unfortunately, there is no clear understanding of the diversity-performance relationship. Therefore, to improve our understanding of this phenomenon, it would be worthwhile to investigate further empirical settings. For this reason, we decided to study the music industry that, to our knowledge, has never been chosen as empirical setting for the application of the theoretical constructs linked to the topic of team diversity and performance. Our research aims at analyze the US music industry to study the relationship between job-related characteristics of team diversity and team performances.
