Subgroup is the subset triggered by team faultlines and the result of deep research in team diversity, which has captured researchers’ attention gradually. This paper has studied the formation and types of subgroup with the deep look of subgroup’s definition, explored the relationship between subgroup and team performance, elaborating the mediators and moderators during that process. And then we introduced an integrated framework to describe and present that researches should take a closer look into the roles of leadership, emotion, country background, social network and subgroup measures play in the subgroup study.
