Abstract

Increasingly, most organizations in the construction sector use teams to meet today's global competition and customer expectations, but they need better ways of evaluating the effectiveness of the teams. To ensure that construction teams are successful and effective, construction companies must promote, measure, and evaluate their teams' effectiveness. It is believed that creating a highly effective project team will produce high-end project outcomes that exceed standards, and, therefore, enhance overall productivity. This paper discusses a method for designing a survey to measure the effectiveness of construction project teams. First the paper describes the steps in designing a survey, and then focuses on the statistical processes used to establish reliability and validity. The survey is pretested and analyzed using explanatory factor analysis to reduce the number of variables and to detect the structure of the questionnaire from the relationship between variables. The paper reports lessons learned during the development of a survey, provides the survey, and offers suggestions for future research.
