Team climate inventory with a merged organization

Abstract
The present study examines the team climate for innovation in work teams within a newly merged organization. Four teams working at a regional head office of a Social Insurance organization answered the Team Climate Inventory. The results were compared to those of a study by Agrell and Gustafson of more stable teams. The compareson showed that parti¬cipative safety and support for innovation were rated lower and that vision was rated higher in the newly merged teams. The 38-item original inventory was used and based on the results, a 1999 proposed shortened version of 14 items by Kivimaki and Elovainio was compared with the original one. Analysis indicated that the short version can be a valid alternative to the original version but that... (More)
