Software indutry has made a revolution in the past decades by surpassing all other business ventures by creating dependence for process as well as information. Software professionals need to work in teams and must have the right mix of skills that include technical, problem solving and interpersonal skills. Professionals of diverse groups tend to be more creative and perform better on problem solving tasks than homogeneous groups. Numerous organizations converted over to a team based approach and because of this; emotional intelligence is needed to aid the transition. Team members must be skilled in emotional intelligence in order to deal with interpersonal and intrapersonal conflicts, raise communication and commitment to accomplish their goals. Personality types affected team interaction and led to maximize the potential of people. Analyzing the Team Effectiveness of five groups of software project teams with regard to Team Diversity, Emotional Intelligence and Personality Traits will enable to understand the dynamics within software project teams and provide insights as to how such teams can stretch their resources to attain greater potentials and effectiveness as strength

Increased global competitions have urged small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to develop new products faster. Virtual research and development (R&D) teams in SMEs can offer a solution to speed up time-to-market of new product development (NPD). However, factors that affect the effectiveness of virtual teams for NPD are still not adequately verified. This book presents the correlations between virtual R&D team constructs and virtual team effectiveness by developing a “Virtual Research and Development Team” (ViR&DT) model. The items, which may influence the effectiveness of virtual teams, are taken from the literature. Through an online survey and by application of structural equation modeling (SEM) technique, the proposed model has been tested. The results suggest that the process construct is strongly correlated to the effectiveness of virtual teams. Therefore, NPD managers in virtual R&D teams should concentrate on the process of new product development rather than simply equipping the teams with the latest technology or employing highly qualified experts. Further empirical research is recommended to fully explore and appreciate the breadth of application of the ViR&DT model.
Cultural diversity plays an increasingly important role in organizations. As the workforce becomes more culturally diverse, companies come across problems, but also see it as a resource to gain better market understanding. In order to benefit from the diverse knowledge, culturally heterogeneous teams are often composed. However, not all such teams manage to produce better results. Why are some teams able to benefit from their diversity, while others show disappointing results? The author Ramona R. Nissl produces answers to this question by looking at the factors that influence the effectiveness of culturally diverse teams. In her literature overview she identifies the following factors to have an impact on team effectiveness: task type, conflict type, team tenure, team composition as well as cultural diversity management and organizational culture. Furthermore, she interviewed 15 managers of European companies working in China to compare the literature findings with the experiences made by culturally diverse top management teams. This book addresses people working in diverse teams, HR managers and companies that wish to improve the performance of their culturally diverse teams.
Today''s organizations have to deal with complex challenges to pursue their ultimate goals of viability and sustained competitive advantage in the world of industry (Boxall & Purcell, 2003). These global challenges and competition cause pressures that are influencing the emergence of teams as a basic building block of organizations (Kozlowski & Bell, 2003). In developing a conceptual model on the relationship between expertise diversity and team performance, I argue that different levels of expertise diversity may facilitate distinct types of team learning and team performance dependent upon type of team task. By differentiating between adaptive team learning, generative team learning, and transformative team learning, I attempt to clarify how team learning as a mediator can link the different levels of expertise diversity to the distinct team performance dimensions of effectiveness, efficiency, innovation and transformation. Moreover, type of team task moderates the relationships between expertise diversity, team learning, and team performance.
Emotion is an authentic component of everyday work life. The sagacious use of emotions or emotional intelligence in the workplace is being recognized as an influential factor in organizational effectiveness, leadership, and work outcomes. Likewise, the social and emotional competencies of work teams are purported to improve the effectiveness in an organization. Emotionally intelligent leaders are believed to be critically important for organizational success. This exploratory study focused on examining the relationship of emotional intelligence and leadership excellence with organizational effectiveness among police personnel. The study looked at the process and structure of Indian police force and examined how they differ on different components of EI. Moreover, an effort was made to demonstrate that how leadership style and its effectiveness contributes in improving organizational effectiveness. The results of the study suggest that a positive, caring, and supportive work environment can predict a team's effectiveness. These findings imply that police leadership can try to create team & workplace that would foster, value, and reward positive and respectful working relationships.
Are happier leaders more effective? Do happier teams perform better? Does happiness have anything to do with leadership effectiveness, team cohesiveness and team performance? If yes, then is it an unqualified yes or only certain types of happiness are strong predictors of these desirable organizational outcomes? This study was conducted to answer these questions. What the scholar found from these initial explorations is certainly very encouraging and perhaps needs to be pursued by other researchers.
