Chapter 1: Types of conflict: The history and future of conflict definitions and typologies
Restricted access

This chapter will present past typologies of conflict and their historical development (for example, task, relationship, and process conflict). It will also review more recent research that has shown extended or varied typologies of conflict in organizations. Finally, different conceptualizations of conflict, such as conflict asymmetry (when members view the same conflict differently), will be presented and future research directions will be discussed.
