Throughout this book, particularly with respect to chapters relating to IPD-alliance behaviour factors, there is an underlying assumption that effective people integration and collaboration in project teams requires organisational support for a collective collaborative ‘culture’. Several chapters, for example Chapter 2, have explained collaborative action in terms of institutional theory, where the second of the three pillars supporting institutional theory relates to the ‘norms’ and values held by individuals and groups of people. Thus, an understanding of culture from an individual, group (or team) and organisational level is necessary to make sense of what may be meant by ‘norms’ and ‘values’ that underpin how people perceive the world they inhabit and work within.
