Research in progress

Title:
. “Intercultural global virtual team performance and student expectations.”

Description:
This study explores the relationship among student expectations, actions and performance in multicultural international global teams. Teams composed of US and European students complete projects using video conference, internet and voice of internet technology. Performance is predicted to be related to the accuracy of students’ perceptions of the ease or difficulty of working in multicultural dispersed virtual teams.

Title:
A Cross-Cultural Test of Colquitt’s Four-Factor Justice Model: Comparing the United States, Taiwan and the People’s Republic of China

Description:
The current study examines Collquitt’s (2001) four-factor model of organizational justice to determine its fit in a cross-cultural setting. We compare justice perceptions and the importance of justice in the United States, Taiwan and the People’s Republic of China. Our results are not consistent with those of the Colquitt study. Not only are there differences in the factor structure for the justice variables in each of the three locations, but the strength of the justice concerns are inconsistent. Moreover, the justice factor structure in the US is not the same as that found by Collquitt. We suggest that context may be an important element in the study of the justice constructs.

Title:
Experiencing the Effects of Distance and Culture in Multicultural Semi-Virtual Teams

Description:
This study investigates several factors that may affect multicultural semi-virtual team performance: Communication processes, technology, individual team member characteristics, and team characteristics. We study semi-virtual student teams linked between the US (University of Cincinnati) and Austria (Johannes Kepler University-Linz)




Title:
Leadership and followers’ taking charge: The moderating role of identification with leader

Description:

Title:
Leadership, supervisor-focused justice, and follower values: A comparison of three leadership approaches in China

Description:
This research examines how supervisor-focused procedural, distributive, interpersonal and informational justice mediate the impact of transformational, transactional, and paternalistic leadership on followers’ in-role and extra-role performance. The moderating effect of the followers’ cultural values of traditionality and modernity on the relationships between leadership and justice is also considered.

Title:
Perceived External Influences, Politics and Justice in Chinese Organizations

Description:
This study examines the extent to which government and market forces affect employees' perceptions of organizational justice. We use structural equation modeling to determine the independent effects of market forces and government intervention on employee perceptions in Chinese firms. This is important to document as China moves more into a market economy. We look at state-owned enterprises, private enterprises and publicly trade firms.
