Abstract

Suggests that teamworking is a critical success factor for most organizations. The study reported in this paper sought to investigate the relationship between the level of trust between members of a workteam and the performance of that team. The study involved 148 members of 28 teams across four organisations. Suggests that though there is a relationship between trust and performance (which was found to be particularly strong within two of the organizations), there are other factors at play. Suggests a number of factors which require further investigation.
