Abstract: Large projects requiring the pooling of engineering resources are becoming more common and give rise to various consortium and joint-venture arrangements. Such multi-firm ventures are undertaken to share liabilities and a number of potential benefits which can be destroyed if the special people and organization problems that can arise under such arrangements aren't recognized and dealt with quickly. Experiences to date in organization and people management problems on the twelve year, –1.5 billion Milwaukee Water Pollution Abatement Program and the solutions found to be beneficial in overcoming the potential problems encountered are discussed. Topics covered include staff orientation, training, organization, management audits and personnel policies.
