Abstract

Recently open innovation teams have been increasingly adopted in Taiwan Both the MOST Promoting Program for Cross-Field Creative Scenario Value-Adding and Bayer have open innovation teams However the compilation of diverse individual knowledge and capabilities at team level core to the success of open innovation teams has been hard Team learning is a process undertaken to improve such compilation making it worthwhile to study the team learning process in open innovation teams This research focuses on open innovation teams in academic circles Based on a survey completed by 111 scholars who had participated in the MOST Promoting Program for Cross-Field Creative Scenario Value-Adding this research explores the relationships between three kinds of team members’ characteristics (namely behavioral competence diversity openness to experience perception of commercialization) team learning and performance The findings are as the following: (1) openness to experience and perception of commercialization are positively related to team learning but behavioral competence diversity is not; (2) team learning is positively related to performance; (3) behavioral competence diversity is positively related to performance but openness to experience and perception of commercialization are not; (4) team learning can mediate openness to experience and perception of commercialization separately to achieve performance but cannot mediate behavioral competence diversity to achieve performance The effect of behavioral competence diversity is confirmed: it is positively related to performance but not proved to be positively related to team learning The effect of openness to experience on team learning is established for the first time In practice it is suggested that the three personal characteristics discussed should be taken into consideration when selecting members for open innovation teams and that team learning should be promoted more intensively in open innovation teams
