Description

I study relationships between workplace environment (context) and employee’s competencies and their influence on personal and team work performance. In this study I consider complex work environment surrounding employee. Better understanding of studying relationships will give more efficient tools and methods for improving performance.

SUMMARY OF PROJECT WORKPLACE CONTEXT AND ITS EFFECT ON INDIVIDUAL COMPETENCIES AND PERFORMANCE IN A PROJECT TEAM PROJECT PURPOSE This study aims to investigate the potential benefits of considering the relationships between workplace environment and employees preferences to achieve improvements in personal professional performance, work climate and satisfaction. The understanding of relationships between individual competencies and project context factors provides an important means to improve the management practices. There are two major hypotheses to test during the study which include: H1. Organizational Culture, Organizational Climate, Team, Manager and Task characteristics significantly influence Employee competencies. H2. The higher matching between Employees’ characteristics and project (work) context, the higher shown competencies, job satisfaction and levels of personal and team performance. SCOPE AND BACKGROUND OF RESEARCH The study investigates how a project context affects the competencies and performance of innovation project teams. Project context is understood as a work context in project environment. It is a set of conditions in which team members act. It is described in terms of Organizational Culture, Organizational Climate, Team, Manager and characteristics of these concepts. If a project context is appropriate and well matched with the employees, it leads to a higher individual and team performance Competencies are considered as individual characteristics (including skills and knowledge) that are manifested in behavior of employee and causally related to and can predict high level of individual performance. Individual competencies provide a basis for high level of team performance. RESEARCH METHODOLOGY The research methodology utilize two methods: survey based on self-administered questionnaires and Behavior Event Interview (BEI). The survey based on a set of self-administered questionnaires which will be used to collect needed data. Data collecting process and tools for manager and employees are separated. The set of questionnaires will take around 25-40 minutes to complete. Behavior Event Interview (BEI) used short-story fashions to describe daily work of participants in terms of three peak successes and three major failures. The BEI duration is about 30-60 minutes. PROJECT SIGNIFICANCE AND VALUE The study not only provides methods for optimal matching between work context and individual

competencies but also provides tools for improvement of team performance by facilitating the required competencies in specific work context. A model and hence a simulation platform will be built to predict the performance and the competencies that will show in the specific work context. Applications of the research results will have significant impact to business practices and help to get a comprehensive view of the organization management practices and its effect on team performance. Applications include decision making about forming project teams that are more likely to achieve high levels of performance as well as improving of management practices and workplace environment.
