The Research Findings Database is a summary of findings from more than 70 empirical papers (peer-reviewed journal articles, dissertations and working papers) about relational coordination, across multiple industries in over a dozen countries. Use this database to help determine areas of focus for your RC research.

  • Predictors of relational coordination include structures such as selecting for teamwork, shared accountability and rewards, shared conflict resolution mechanisms, boundary spanner roles, shared information systems and more.
