Abstract

 The Organization Readiness of Engineering Project Management Based on Virtual Teams has been analyzed in an Iranian Engineering firm. Adapting and analyzing the latest readiness model, experts’ opinions were received by questionnaires and main criteria of the readiness have been identified. The considered readiness criteria are: Infrastructure, Deliverables (Drawings, Reports, Minutes of Meetings, Letters and Invoices), Human Resources, Information Technology and Communications, Organization Chart, Financial Resources and Business Environment Factors. They have been classified by Interpretive Structural Model (ISM) and MicMac Analysis. The Priorities have been determined by Friedman Test. The sub-criteria of two main criteria with the highest priority are Human Resources and Deliverables that have been selected by experts and their priorities have been determined by calculation of the Eigenvalue in the linear system of the model. In order to enlist virtual teams in this engineering firm, it is necessary to improve human resources team knowledge, which increases the quality of the deliverables.
