Abstract

Many empirical studies have examined factors leading to project success, and project participants' satisfaction on project performance. However, few of them reported how the participants felt about their jobs in the projects. This study aimed to explore the relationships among overall project performance, interorganization teamwork, project participants' job satisfaction, and their personal views on the design/build (D/B) procurement method. Bivariate correlation analysis of data provided by 53 participants of public-sector projects through a questionnaire survey was conducted. The findings reveal that if interorganizational teamwork is fostered in D/B projects, (1) successful project performance could result; (2) project participants would develop a positive view of the D/B procurement method; and (3) their job satisfaction would be higher. Researchers and practitioners are advised to focus not only on the functional aspects of project performance, but also on the human aspects. More empirical studies on interorganizational teamwork should be undertaken.
