Abstract

How should a company organize a project team to develop new products? This study examined the relative effectiveness of four types of team structures by comparing the performance of 559 development projects in terms of development cost, new product development speed, and product commercial success. The results indicate that in general, autonomous team structure is superior to other team structures, especially in dealing with high technology projects or developing radical innovation products.
