- The team-level innovation is critical for a team to consistently adapt to its changing environment by promoting its members’ creative ideas and behaviors. Relying on the social capital perspective, the current paper investigates team-level innovation and offers a theoretical framework to explain the interactive effects of individual and team-level attributes on team innovation. We argue that the team-level innovation will be affected by the opinion leaders’ social capital available from their external social relations and that such effects will be moderated by the team-level social capital that represents the cohesiveness and status similarity among team members.
