Relations Between Interdisciplinary Project Management and Project Performance.
Benton, Douglas A.; And Others
Two projects concerning the relationship between management capability and communication activities are described; both are considered interdisciplinary projects. Involved were researchers and practitioners from engineering and natural science fields as well as those from the social and managerial sciences. The objectives of the research were to: (1) develop workable criteria for evaluating the effectiveness of large-scale interdisciplinary projects, and (2) identify those organizational and personnel management characteristics most highly related to these criteria. Benefits to be achieved are: (1) to assist in efficient allocation and conservation of Federal dollars, (2) development of an efficient internal operation geared to interdisciplinary research, (3) to develop harmonious working relationships within the university or other large institutions, and (4) to enhance the initiative (and morale) or personnel involved in research.
