Job Performance Dimensions for Improving Final Project Outcomes
Cheng, Eddie W. L., Li, Heng, & Fox, Paul (2007) Job Performance Dimensions for Improving Final Project Outcomes. Journal of Construction Engineering and Management, 133(8), pp. 592-599.
Job performance is argued to be substantially influential to project performance. However, existing construction management literature pays less attention to job performance issues, not to mention exploring the relationship between job performance and project performance. This study therefore aims at examining the effects of job performance on project performance. Four categories (task, behavior, management, and self) of job performance dimensions were extracted by means of an exploratory factor analysis. A hypothesized model is developed, which specifies the relationships between the four job performance categories (independent variables) and overall project performance (the dependent variable). The model was tested using path analysis. Results indicate that the task category of job performance (consisting of nine dimensions) is significantly related to final project outcomes. Specifically, for the success of a project, a construction company must consider how to ensure employees are equipped with such attributes as responsibility, quality of work, ability, job knowledge, experience, efficiency, accuracy, judgment, and initiative.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
