Abstract [en]

BACKGROUND: Choosing the right communication strategy is essential for

organizations in today’s business. Nowadays, all organizations

are facing operational changes; therefore, internal

communication is significant for all businesses. Internal

communication focuses on information and knowledge sharing

activities within organizations, which are led by leaders that

have the responsibility to distribute information and knowledge

to employees in the organization and across departments

PURPOSE: The purpose of the study is to investigate the relationship

between internal communication and its components and how

it affects team performance.

METHOD: The research was a quantitative case study where 42 out of 70

employees at Specma Seals AB answered the questionnaire.

The survey was sent out by email, using surveygizmo.com in

April 2014. The response rate was 60%. A meeting with Specma

Seals was arranged to conduct a deeper understanding of the

company situation.

CONCLUSION: The conclusion of this study is that two of the hypotheses were

supported and one rejected meaning that leadership and

information and knowledge sharing has a positive relationship

with team performance meanwhile cross-functionality didn’t.
