Influential Factors for Team Reflexivity and New Product Development

Despite the important influence of team reflexivity on new product development (NPD) success, a thorough analysis of its key antecedents, mediators, and moderators is lacking in the literature. Using cognitive fit theory, knowledge management perspective, justice theory, and self-verification theory, this study proposed that existing knowledge, task familiarity, and procedural justice are three of the vital factors that lead to NPD success by encouraging team reflexivity. This study also examined the effects of team conflict on team reflexivity and NPD success. Survey data were collected from 254 NPD team members, and these data were then analyzed using the PROCESS Macro from SPSS and the partial least squares (PLS) approach. The results of this study showed that the three aforementioned factors play a significant role in NPD success. The importance of team conflict was then examined, and the results showed that when relationship conflict is higher, the effect of team reflexivity on NPD success tends to be weaker.
