Recent research on
virtual teams highlights the importance of high quality relationships to
achieve high team performance. For research and development (R&D)
virtual project teams, relationships characterized by cooperation and
trust are expected to enhance creativity and innovation among team
members. The purpose of this paper is to identify variables enabling
high quality relationship building in virtual R&D teams and to
analyze their influence on team performance. To this end, this study
examines the effects of leadership, work organization and communication
practices on the quality of the relationship between team members. The
theoretical developments are illustrated through a case study of a car
development project in a leading French car-making firm, PSA. Our
findings show that dynamic and positive leadership plays an important
role in enhancing relationships between team members. The results also
highlight the importance of synchronous meetings and frequent and
regular interaction to build cooperative and trusty relationships
leading to high performance. © 2015, CIBER Institute. All rights
