Boone, C. A. J. J. and Van Olffen, W. and van Witteloostujin, A. (2005) 'Team locus of control composition, leadership structure, information acquisition and financial performance : a business simulation study.', Academy of management journal., 48 (5). pp. 889-909.

Abstract

We argue that team information acquisition mediates the effect of the relationship of team locus-of-control composition and leadership structure on team financial performance in a decision-making context. Hypotheses were tested on 44 teams participating in an elaborate and lengthy international management simulation. As predicted, teams with high average internal locus-of-control scores performed better without leaders and with low locus-of-control heterogeneity. The opposite was found for teams with high average external locus-of-control scores. Contrary to expectations, teams with high locus-of-control heterogeneity did not benefit more from having leaders than teams with low heterogeneity. Information acquisition mediated relationships between locus-of-control composition and performance
