Establishing a norm for project organisational structure is a very crucial and challenging task. In order to establish the new norm the individual or project manager has to look into the current norm existing in the organization such as JKR. Then the second factor is to look into the needs of the people involved in the particular project itself. This particular process will definitely takes time because it falls under the authority of human resource department. So, the aim of this study is to look into the project existing norm of organizational structure, problems related to it and finally to suggest and propose an improvement to the current existing norm. There are three distinguished phases in the study: phase 1 involves determination of the topic, aim, objectives, scope and literature review; phase 2 comprises of Research design, research questions and questionnaire preparation supplemented by focus group interview together with individual expert interview question and followed by data collection from the respondent involved; phase 3 consist of analyzing the data and subsequently propose the solution for the improvement of the norm. As found out by observation at the site and face to face interview that all those projects are managed by one professional staff full time at the site. Finally the outcomes of this study are establishment of the norm that could apply to other JKR project as a whole in the same category
