Abstract : Factors contributing to outstanding outcomes for major construction projects are identified and evaluated in this report. The report documents the results of an extensive research project undertaken at the University or Texas to determine what causes outstanding projects to differ from average ones. Possible factors were indentified through exhaustive literature review and in-depth interviews with highly experienced construction management personnel. Objective data was gathered for each of 21 potential factors from 26 major construction projects. This data was then evaluated using rigorous statistical tests to determine the significant differences between average and outstanding projects. The report concludes with specific recommendations for construction project managers based on the observed findings.
