There has been a great increase of interest by the academics and practitioners in the studies on teamwork and evaluation of team performance in the recent years. Yet there are still some gaps in the related literature especially in team performance evaluation models and approaches. Such models focusing only on individuals as a measurement unit have been criticized because they foster individual competition and harm the team spirit. On the other hand, the models over emphasizing the teams as a measurement unit have been accepted as ignoring the individual performance and recognition and not preventing the social-loafing. It was also noticed that in the literature inter-team performance measurement and evaluation processes have been as well ignored. This study aims at a) reviewing the previous studies on team performance evaluation, b) identifying some integration gaps in current team performance models, c) developing a conceptual model and d) formulating some propositions for the researchers who want to make further studies in this topic. This paper is based on critical review of previous empirical and theoretical team performance measurement literature and it is tried to develop a conceptual model to produce new insights of indicators affecting team performance measurement and evaluation. The study tries to extend the previous work on team performance evaluation models by developing an “integrated” model with some new variables. At the end of the study nine hypothetical propositions were developed. The model intends to suggest some new views related with the team performance’s place in the system of organizational performance.
