The following is the source document from the research project entitled, “Building the Project Team.” The research topic and approach evolved from discussions about construction project organizations within the Project Organization Task Force of the Construction Industry Institute (CII). These discussions were laced with the repeated observation that the purchase of a construction project was as much (or more) the purchase of a team as it was the purchase of a product.

The research project began with the plan to see how owners and contractors built project teams. The Project Organization Task Force defined a team as “a group of people who could get more done working together than working alone.” The definition includes groups within the boundaries of one corporation and those which span corporate boundaries.
