Interdependence Constructs:

Interdependence Constructs is the situation where performance goals and a pay for performance plan create the same type of interdependence (i.e., same direction), thereby giving consistent signals as to the desired behavior (cooperation, competition, or individualistic). In this situation, these signals are consistent with the level of task interdependence and the need to cooperate resulting from this: high task interdependence requires cooperative behavior, while low task interdependence requires a mixture of cooperative and individualistic behavior.
