Roxanne Zolin's insight:

This is the Havas Worldwide Prosumer Report on Communities and Citizenship: Redesigned for a New World, vol 15, 2013.

Abstract:

Our findings are drawn from responses to an online

survey of 10,219 men and women in 31 countries: Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, the Czech Republic, the Dominican Republic, Finland, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Malaysia, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia,

Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Taiwan, Turkey, Ukraine,

the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, and

the United States. The respondent base is made up of

79 percent mainstream consumers and 21 percent

leading-edge Prosumers; we pay particular attention to the latter group because what they are thinking and doing today is a good indication of what the mainstream will be thinking and doing in the near future. The survey was fielded by Market Probe International in summer 2012.

A note about the data:

In this report, we explore global responses, with an emphasis on distinctions between Prosumers and the mainstream, as well as the various age groups. Where warranted, additional data is provided but not necessarily included in the data graphics. Country-specific findings are available

to Havas Worldwide colleagues and clients in a supplemental brochure.

ScienceDirect.com - Information and Interpersonal trust in cross-functional, geographically distributed work: A longitudinal study

ScienceDirect.com - Information and Interpersonal trust in cross-functional, geographically distributed work: A longitudinal study | Trust Research | Scoop.it
Roxanne Zolin's insight:

With increasing globalization and the proliferation of communication technologies, more people are working in cross-functional, geographically distributed teams. Although trust is clearly an important ingredient in these collaborations, little is known about the challenges this new work and social environment creates for the development of trust. Different disciplinary perspectives, different regional or national cultures, and the lack of face-to-face interaction when working at a distance raise significant barriers to developing trust between distant co-workers. We, therefore, posit that traditional models of trust need to be adapted to describe the development of trust between cross-functional, geographically distributed partners. To test our hypotheses, we conducted a longitudinal study of architecture, engineering and construction management students engaged in designing and planning a $5 million construction project in distributed teams. Our results suggest that cross-functional, geographically distributed workers may rely on early impressions of perceived trustworthiness when evaluating how their distant partners are delivering on commitments, because reliable information about actual follow-through is lacking or difficult to interpret. Consistent with this, we found that perceived trustworthiness, perceived follow-through and trust were relatively stable over time. We conclude that initial perceptions of trustworthiness are particularly important in cross-functional, geographically distributed work, although research is needed to draw comparisons with traditional work environments.

Trust and Distrust in Organizations: Dilemmas and Approaches (The Russell Sage Foundation Series on Trust, V. 7) [Roderick Moreland Kramer, Karen S. Cook] on Amazon.com. *FREE* super saver shipping on qualifying offers.
Roxanne Zolin's insight:

Roxanne Zolin and Pamela Hinds in chapter 9 explore some of the difficulties in creating and sustaining interpersonal trust in geographically distributed cross-functional work teams. Trust theorists have long argued the benefits of face-to-face interaction and direct experience with others in the trust-building process. As more and more work in organizations is done by individuals who are dispersed geographically, however, it is clear that opportunities for such critical trust-building opportunities will be reduced, and so it becomes important to understand the extent to which trust can and does develop in the absence of such experience. Zolin and Hinds investigate these issues by comparing trust development in geographically collocated versus distributed dyads of student construction-design teams. Using a longitudinal methodology, they sampled trust levels at several points in time, which enabled them to assess changes in trust levels. The authors found that trust levels in distributed dyads changed significantly less than trust levels in collocated teams. Although trust increased more in collocated teams, it also decreased more, consistent with prior research suggesting that trust levels are updated on the basis of direct experience. Zolin and Hinds also examine how risk perceptions affect trust in geographically dispersed teams. They initially hypothesized that risk would be a significant factor in predicting trust levels for dispersed dyads, so that more risk meant less trust. Their results supported this hypothesis. Viewed in the aggregate, their findings clearly suggest that the dynamics of trust development and maintenance are different in dispersed and collocated teams. However, clearly more research is needed to document how to overcome some of the liabilities of distance for the trust-building process. Zolin and Hinds’s results suggest the possibility that if distributed teams could meet initially for a brief period that led to positively structured interaction, then the team members might enjoy a relatively stable sort of trust predicated on the positive group stereotype.
