Abstract The authors suggest that cultural diversity and orientation affect a workgroup's communication network, which in turn impacts group performance. A conceptualization of culture is presented which is based on Harry Triandis' 1995 framework in which individualism and collectivism are differentiated and where he argues that individualists view the self as autonomous and prioritize task performance. Subgroups are expected to form in a workgroup based on the level of cultural diversity in a group. The authors suggest that intermediate levels of diversity are likely to have the highest number of subgroups.
