How Team-Level and Individual-Level Conflict Influences Team Commitment: A Multilevel Investigation
The results showed that individual-level relationship conflict was negatively related to team commitment while individual- level task conflict was not, and both team-level task and relationship conflict were negatively associated with team commitment. Expand

Moving beyond relationship and task conflict: toward a process-state perspective.
The current study theoretically reorganizes the literature on team conflict--distinguishing conflict states from conflict processes--and details the effects of each on team effectiveness, suggesting states and processes are distinct and important predictors of team performance and affective outcomes.
