    Identifying Success Factors for High Performance Project Teams

    Identifying Success Factors for High Performance Project Teams CoverPublished by Construction Industry Institute, 1998

    The research focuses on how reductions in cost and schedule that can be attributed to high-performance project teams. “High performance” is defined by survey respondents as being 10 percent or better performance against established targets for cost, schedule, safety, customer satisfaction and rework.

    Key Findings:

    • Projects with leaders engaged in effective leader behaviors experience reduced cost growth.
    • Projects that use CII's best practices of scope management and project alignment experience reduced cost growth.
    • Projects that use CII's best practices of planning and project controls experience reduced schedule growth.
    • No strong association exists between team member characteristics and project high performance.
    • An apparent trade-off occurs between cost and schedule in achieving high performance targets, such as a project team may achieve reductions in cost or schedule, but rarely both, even in a high-performance environment.
    • Formal team building, in the absence of effective, consistent project leadership behaviors, is not a predictor of high performance.
