With teamwork being the norm since the 1980s, many researchers have conducted studies on the relationships among different characteristics of team performance. We investigated 55 teams formed by 294 Master of Business Administration students at a university in China, asking them to complete a task as part of a team of 3-8 members before filling out surveys to assess repeated collaboration and time pressure. Task performance was assessed by the students’ instructors. The results showed that repeated collaboration had a negative influence on team performance and that time pressure moderated this relationship. Managerial implications are discussed.
