There is evidence that higher degrees of collaborative working can generate more successful project performance, but there has been only limited research to systematically examine the specific impact of collaborative working on project performance. In particular, there is a lack of exploration of appropriate approaches to quantify the impact. In order to fill in this gap, this research aims to differentiate the different degrees of collaborative working that reflect a corresponding project performance. In doing so, the association could be made between collaborative working and project performance. In order to test the association, two key concepts (collaborative working and project performance) will have to be transferred into a form which is measurable. In this process, the concepts will be broken down into indicators, and further down into items, based upon which, Likert scales will be used to design the measurement of the concepts. By measuring the concepts, a range of collaborative working and their impact on project performance can be identified.
