Team climate and Leadership has been viewed as implicitly inter-related variables as a warm conducive work climate would lead to an effective leadership quality which also extensively affects the two prime attributes such as knowledge-sharing and innovative Work behavior of an employee. Design / Methodology/ Approach: The focus of this study is to assess the determinants of theTeam Climate on Work Teams. The data for the study was collected from the software developers from various IT organizations. The team climate inventory (TCI) used in the study also has to tested for its impact on the Work Teams. The sample data was obtained from five major IT organizations in Chennai and Bangalore region. Selected organizations mainly comprises of the Software Developer’s Team under the Self Managed Team base. The data used for the study is empirical though some of the base studies was found to contain information form appropriate sources. The basic tools used for analysing the data were IBM SPSS Statistics20 and multiple regressions were performed using AMOS Graphics for running the Structured Equation Modeling Technique (SEM). Scale development: The Team Climate Inventory(TCI) which uses the five point Agreement scale contains four dimensions namely Vision(12),Task Orientation(7), Support for Innovation (8) Participative Safety(7) which accounts to nearly 34 items. The scale was developed by Neil.R.Anderson and Michael A.West (1994). Findings and Implications: The research findings about the study done on the determinants of team climate shows that the factor loadings pertaining to the Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) using AMOS Graphics (SEM) has been proved to be have a good impact and thereby it is to be implied that there prevails a conducive team climate in the organization which serves as a limelight for a best level of Knowledge sharing behaviour and Innovative work behaviour among employees in the organization. Conclusion: Thus it has been found from the research findings and observations that a good Team climate among the work teams would enhance the Team Trust as observed from the meta analytical studies, that in turn would boost the Knowledge sharing and the Innovative Work Behaviour amongst Teams to a greater appreciable level. Scope: The study involves only on IT sector, whereas the study can be examined in different sectors, like manufacturing, hospitality and tourism sector.
