Abstract:This study investigates the effect of distributed leadership on the relationship between intra-organizational routines alignment and collaboration performance, measured in terms of innovativeness. Intra-organizational routines are routines that two groups bring into the collaboration; they can be complementary or supplementary. Distributed leadership refers to more than one individual taking on a leadership role during the collaboration. The effect of those two concepts on collaborative innovation performance was examined in an experimental setting. The results show that teams with supplementary routines are more innovative than those with complementary routines. Additionally, a moderating effect of distributed leadership on the relationship between intra-organizational routines and collaboration performance was not confirmed. However, distributed leadership predicts innovation performance in such a manner that higher levels of distributed leadership lead to greater innovativeness.
