Abstract

Companies implement project management methodologies to promote repeated project success and diffuse good practices in project management. Project teams should be integrated to pursue common goals, but this may be challenging in multi-project contexts where resources are shared across projects. This research develops new knowledge on using a tailored project management methodology in a multi-project context to integrate the project teams toward common goals. An embedded case study was conducted in an engineering firm with repetitive maintenance projects. The results revealed four types of experienced benefits for project team integration from using a tailored project management methodology. The study contributes by demonstrating that a tailored project management methodology can promote project team integration.
