The purpose of our paper is twofold: on one hand we draw on the team climate literature to

understand how IT knowledge integration capability can be promoted within team-based structures;

on the other hand we rely on resource-based view framework for understanding how IT knowledge

integration capability affects teams performance, in terms of effectiveness, and efficiency. We tested

our research model on a sample of 410 members and leaders of 69 organizational work teams. Results

show the critical role played by team climate for favouring IT knowledge integration capability, which

in turn affects team outcomes..
