Abstract: Forming a diversified team is a human resource strategy that aims to improve scientific research project performance through diversified team structure and productive interaction among team members, but how a diversified team and members' interactive behaviors promote project performance remains unclear. Aiming at the problem, the paper analyses the relationship of team diversity, team faultiness, behavior integration and project performance by selecting of NSFC's general projects as empirical research samples to validate the relationship. The results show that scientific research project diversity is not all helpful to project performance, even it does not have negative effect on team behavior integration and project performance, and scientific research project team faultiness has a U-curve relationship with team behavior integration. In addition, it is also found that team behavior integration is more helpful to project performance than team diversity.

Key words: team diversity, scientific research project, behavior integration, project performance
