A strong vision and role definition can provide direction to a team and can positively impact its ability to succeed. However, although many studies conclude that vision and role clarity are important at the organizational level, the impacts of vision and role clarity on innovation/teams have received far less attention. The purpose of this research is to discuss vision components and Role Clarity, and explore their impacts on team performance. After studying the vision on a series of 9 innovation teams at three companies (Apple, IBM, and HP), we empirically tested the impact of the two components of vision (Vision Clarity, and Vision Support) and Role Clarity on overall team performance. Data were collected from 75 team members. We found that Vision Clarity has a positive effect on team performance. We also found that Vision Support and Role Clarity are not significantly related to team performance.
