Theory

Global virtual teams (O'Hara-Devereaux and Johansen 1994)

Highly geographically dispersed; transcend temporal and geographical boundaries

Group diversity research (Williams & O’Reilly, 1998)

“Value in diversity” approach

Members’ differences cause misunderstandings, destructive conflict, and decreased trust due to social categorization processes

Faultline hypothesis (Lau & Murnighan, 1998)

“Faultlines” are differences that divide a group into distinct subgroups.

Strongest intergroup dynamics occur across strong faultlines.

Our interest is geographical dispersion as a dimension of diversity
