Work Organization, Technology, and Performance in Customer Service and Sales.
Batt, Rosemary
Industrial and Labor Relations Review, v52 n4 p539-64 Jul 1999
Performance data on 223 customer-service and sales representatives showed that participation in self-managed teams correlated with significant improvement in service quality and 9.3% sales increase. New technology helped teams increase sales 17.4%. Total-quality management did not affect performance. Results show that group collaboration fosters continuous learning and tacit knowledge. (SK)
