The project governance function has been identified by existing research as a critical tool for achieving successful project delivery. This research identifies the predominant project governance structure used by large hub airports in the United States (US), including its form, primary objective, tools, mechanisms, adaptiveness, and participants. Additionally, this research identifies the point when the project governance function starts and ends in the project delivery cycle, providing a standard tool to measure governance and project performance. Other features of this mixed methods research include the identification of prioritized opportunities for improvement to existing project governance structure, practices, utilization, reporting, and contracts. This research also provides a methodology for assessing opportunities to improve existing project governance structures and practices, as well as to conduct process improvement initiatives.
