Although groups have historically played an important role in organizational life, the proliferation of technology has facilitated the ability of individuals to span multiple boundaries, including geographic, temporal, functional, and organizational. Although group research has begun to investigate many of these boundaries, very little research has explicitly examined the effect of the organizational boundary on group processes and outcomes. The research in this paper was designed to begin understanding how the inherent structure and external nature of inter-organizational teams effects group conflict processes.
