This study investigates two types of influences on team performances, one involveing team leaders’ adoption of autocratic leadership and the intermediate effect of organization-internal peer teams’ opportunism through team’s organizational commitment, and the other, the adequacy of team resources. treating organization-internal teams as samples, the study targets teams within more than 70 nationwide technological businesses for investigation. 129 effective samples have been collected and run for statistical evaluations. The results of research prove that autocratic leadership does not necessarily influence team performances. However, peer teams’ opportunism does negatively influence team performances through team’s organizational commitment and negatively alters the relationship between team’s organizational commitment and team performances. Moreover, the adequacy of team resources also directly influence team performances. Although some previous studies demonstrate that autocratic leadership causes negative reactions from the subordinates, according to the results of the study, negative influences of autocratic leadership on team performances can be avoided through appropriate measures of leadership taken by team leaders. Besides, organization-internal peer team’s opportunism should be avoided as much as possible, while appropriate and adequate resources should be provided based on team needs in order to avoid influences and consequently enhance team performance.
