Abstract

Drawing on social exchange theory, the current research hypothesizes voice climate as a mediator of the relationship between team-member exchange (TMX) and both team decision-making effectiveness and innovative performance. Furthermore, we propose that task interdependence moderates the mediational relationship between TMX, voice climate, team decision-making effectiveness, and innovative performance. Survey results based on 294 members and their leaders from 73 entrepreneur teams demonstrated that TMX is positively related to voice climate and the two outcome variables. In addition, the relationships between TMX and both decision-making effectiveness and innovative performance are mediated by voice climate perceptions, respectively. Task interdependence moderated the relationship between TMX and voice climate, whereas moderated-mediation analyses indicated that the mediational relationship between TMX, voice climate, and both outcomes is stronger when task interdependence is high rather than low.
