This report presents the findings of a research study to improve the project management undertaken by the U.S. Department of Energy. It identifies key components affecting project performance, evaluates performance factors, measures, and metrics in relation to their correlation with project success; and makes recommendations with regard to improving performance on different types of projects. Sixteen projects were selected by the DOE Office of Engineering and Construction Management, and then examined by the independent research team, which grouped and prioritized factors affecting success and formulated recommendations.
