The success of a project depends on multiple factors such as financial capabilities, technical knowledge and sound project management practices. One very important factor that is often left out is the organizational structure and human resource requirement of a project organization. The setup of a project organization will determine how efficient and effective it will be and may be the deciding factor on whether a project will succeed or not. Not many researches have been done to determine how a particular project team structure can affect a construction project with the norm being a team is formed based on personal experience. Thus, this study aims to investigate the effectiveness of current JKR organization structure in managing conventional projects at the district level in order to propose an improved and more effective method on deciding the best team setup, and develop a model for project team structure and human resource requirement. This study is divided into three phases: Phase 1 is the literature review and preliminary interview; Phase 2 involves of identification and development of current norms model from expert interviews; Phase 3 focuses on analysis and improvement of current organizational structure model. The outcome of this study is a template of a JKR District Office organizational structure and human resource norms that is more effective and efficient through the integration of the 10 Principles of Organization.
