Research project

The Governance of Interorganizational Project Networks

We would like to invite you to participate in a worldwide study on governance of inter-organizational networks for projects.

In this study we investigate the governance of networks of organizations that work repeatedly with each other in different projects.

Your response will help us to develop a better understanding of the governance of inter-organizational networks and their performance.

We ask questions on the organizational structure of one of your past projects, the ways the collaboration of organizations in this project were governed, and the parameters that led to this particular governance.

Please click on the link below to access the survey or forward this email to other project managers you know. Participation will require approximately 10 minutes of your time. In return we offer a summary of the results, if you indicate so in the survey. This will be done through a separate e-mail (more in the questionnaire). Deadline for answering the questionnaire is October 15, 2021.


More detailed information about the study can be read here.

Participation is voluntarily. Information obtained from you will be held in strict confidence. All data will be anonymized by March 31, 2022. No references will be made to specific individuals or names of organizations in future reports.

Thank you very much for your time and consideration of this study. If you have any questions or concerns please contact me using ralf.muller@bi.no.

Best regards,
