23-10-2014: VISICO researchers publish study about leadership in collaborative design

"A leadership-as-practice perspective on design in architecture, engineering and construction projects: interaction analysis of a collaborative workshop"

Authors: Vedran Zerjav, Timo Hartmann & Frederick M.C. van Amstel

The study reveals that leadership in collaborative design is not dependent on personal characteristics, but on the actual performance of people in interacting among its peers. Three different factors were been identified: (1) domain knowledge ownership, (2) frequency of interactions, (3) actor responsiveness and (4) cross-disciplinary knowledge brokering. The paper is written by Post-doc Vedran Zerjav, Timo Hartmann and Frederick van Amstel and published at Engineering Project Organization Journal.
