Case study of five federal projects that were exceptionally good exemplars of collaboration to achieve extremely high energy performance goals. This report recommended that GSA consider that while some aspects of these teams are impossible to replicate for others (either due to the ARRA, a particularly successful individual team leader, or an unexpectedly positive team chemistry), others can be easily repeated for all future projects (investment in relationships, team development of their work processes, mechanisms for alignment, intentional engineering of team chemistry), and some can be strategically repeated where ROI may be lower (heavy investment in custom communication plans and custom implementation or schedule).
Case study comparisons of five federal projects with exceptionally high energy performance goals using some form of performance based contracting. Findings identify consistent organizational behavioral factors contributing to team and project success. Information graphics are used throughout the report to illustrate and provide visual comparisons across cases.
