We propose that interdependence in the work context determines how much work roles are embedded within a broader social system, and that uncertainty determines whether work roles can be formalized or whether they emerge through adaptive and proactive behavior. Cross classification of task, team member, and organization member behaviors with proficiency, adaptivity, and proactivity produces nine subdimensions of work role performance. Proposed distinctions were supported by supervisor ratings (N = 491) from 32 organizations and self-ratings from employees in two organizations (N = 1,228 and N = 927). Self-reports of proactivity were positively correlated with two external measures of proactivity.
