Abstract

This study is the first stage of an on-going research that examines the impact of job performance on project performance. It aims at exploring a measure of job performance. Existing construction management literature pays less attention to job performance issues, not to mention exploring the dimensions of job performance. The present research therefore focuses on identifying and examining a pool of job performance attributes. An exploratory factor analysis is performed to extract the components of job performance, which form the categories of job performance. The extracted components are referred to as the categories of job performance. The next stage of research will be to test which categories are significantly related to project performance. Categories with significant relationship can be treated as critical factors affecting project performance.
