Concurrent engineering technique offers competitive advantage to organizations. The literature suggests
that concurrent engineering practices are influenced by human and technical factors, which are present
within a firm. Despite the importance of human factors, researchers typically have focused on
operational and technical issues of implementation of concurrent engineering practices. More
specifically, the role of human factors such as leadership, perceived equity and envy has not been
explored in concurrent engineering context. Furthermore, the influence of envy on cross-functional team
performance and product development cycle time has not been examined. To this end, the current study
investigates the impact of leader member exchange on envy, and the outcomes of envy in terms of cross-
functional team performance and product development cycle time. An integrated framework which would
be beneficial to managers and practitioners is presented. Finally, we draw conclusions and present some
avenues for future research.
