This thesis deals with the relationships between individual, team, and organizational level factors and performance using multilevel analyses. The thesis consists of four chapters and three studies are presented. The three studies analyze the impact of various individual, team and organizational inputs on individual and team performance through underlying processes. Each study contributes to closing specific research gaps and answering research questions that are of particular interest to practitioners as well as researchers and have not been examined so far. In study one, the impact of two individual characteristics such as need for achievement and risk propensity on employee performance is analyzed. Study two examines the relationship between employee performance and individual (psychological empowerment), team (team empowerment), as well as organizational characteristics (organizational empowerment). In study three the focus lies on a team characteristic such as team personality diversity.
