Generating quality open content: a functional group perspective based on the time, interaction, and performance theory
Abstract We applied the input-process-output approaWe applied the input-process-output approach and time, interaction, and performance theory to examine the input factors (organisational, group-related, and individual) and process factors (group production, group well-being, and member support) that yield group effectiveness, measured as high-quality articles in Wikipedia. The results provided evidence of the positive effects of: group size and shared experience on both group process variables and group effectiveness; group heterogeneity on group production; organisational support and member activeness on group well-being; member activeness on member support; and organisational support and member activeness on group effectiveness. member activeness on group effectiveness.

Conclusion We have empirically confirmed the importanWe have empirically confirmed the importance of group size in providing effective open content group material. More important, new light has been shed on the role of shared experience. Member activeness was also found to be a good explanatory factor of open content group behaviour. Other measures of group performance could have been used in this research project. Even though effectiveness through article featured status was the most appropriate and accurate measure, efficiency measures may also provide insightful and complementary results. For example, a suggested efficiency measure in the context of Wikipedia may be the amount of time before reaching featured status nomination. Overall, our research project attempted to provide general results about both group behaviour and outcomes of open content groups. The influence of member characteristics on group processes and effectiveness was confirmed, highlighting the influence of member activeness on group well-being, member support, and group effectiveness. Our study has shed further light on how open content projects create quality products. A significant contribution has been brought to both MIS research and group research by providing group insights from social psychology in investigating the factors that lead to high quality information-based products. The advent of the Internet challenges the time and geographical constraints of group collaboration by enabling new practices that rely on novel streams of thoughts. Open content is a nascent phenomenon that has started delivering on some of its promises.tarted delivering on some of its promises.

Theories We focused on group input and group process factors in OC communities by using two theoretical foundations: the Input-Process-Output approach and the Time, Interaction, and Performance theory.
