Title

Dancing With the Stars: How Connecting With External-Team Star Colleagues Sparks Team Members’ Innovation Journey

 

Abstract

This study integrates research on stardom and the social model of creativity and innovation to clarify how the full range of a team member’s social contacts (i.e., linked external-team stars, teammates, and direct leaders) play different roles in his/her innovation journey. Using multitime and multisource data (including 239 members in 43 teams) from a high-technology company, we find that a team member’s linked external-team stars’ brokerage is positively related to his/her self-rated idea generation, and this positive relationship is stronger when the focal member’s within-team idea discussion centrality is lower. However, when using leader-rated idea generation as the dependent variable, the above positive relationship is stronger in the condition of higher levels of within-team idea discussion centrality. In addition, we find evidence supporting a positive interactive effect of a team member’s idea generation and leader-member exchange on his/her implementation of creative ideas. Integrating the above results, we further examined a dual-stage moderated mediation model. The theoretical and practical implications of these findings, the limitations of this study, and future research directions are discussed.
