Abstract: The team approach to project delivery has in recent times become predominant and a viable means of meeting client expectations in the construction industry. Hence, evaluating the effectiveness of a project team is considered critical for superior team performance in project delivery. However, there is lack of consensus on the factors contributing to team effectiveness globally. It is affirmed that knowledge of the factors contributing to team effectiveness is imperative and crucial to the success of construction projects and the industry at large. This study seeks to identify the critical factors contributing to the effectiveness of project teams in the Ghanaian construction industry. Stepwise multiple regression analysis revealed five critical factors that show a significant relation with the effectiveness of project teams. The findings are useful for setting a benchmark framework for evaluating team effectiveness and team building in the construction industry in Ghana and other developing countries.
