Abstract:The purpose of this paper is to provide a comprehensive overview of factors (independent variables) that have an impact on NPD team performance (dependent variable), as well as interaction effects between factors (moderators) and indirect effects of factors on NPD team performance only through another factor (mediators.) We aim to review and summarize the existing literature on NPD team performance and provide a sound foundation for practitioners to make evidence-based decisions by synthesizing and organizing the identified variables into a comprehendible, graphical framework. Finally, we aim to contribute to NPD team performance research, by identifying research areas that require further exploration and investigation and provide some suggestions for future research. We will not include control variables in our analysis, because we aim to identify the more complex relationships between the independent, dependent, moderating and mediating variables. Control variables do not play a role in this relationships and will thus be omitted from further analysis
