Dr. Paul S. Chinowsky provides the scientific research basis behind STAR Research Analysis. Dr. Chinowsky is an professor in the Department of Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering at the University of Colorado at Boulder and is currently conducting research in the area of high performance organizations in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry. He is actively engaged in research including innovation in the engineering industry, the development of learning organizations, and the role of strategic management in organization success. Dr. Chinowsky has been extensively published in the area of organization management and consults with engineering companies to introduce the concepts of strategic management.
Dr. Chinowsky currently serves as associate chair in the Department of Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering and is actively involved in strategic planning efforts for the University of Colorado at Boulder. At the national level, Dr. Chinowsky is an active member of the American Society of Civil Engineers and the International Council for Research and Innovation in Building and Construction (CIB) where he serves as a conference coordinator. He is also a member of several journal editorial boards.
The center of Dr. Chinowsky’s current research work is on the development and support of high performance organizations in the engineering-construction industry. These teams may be at the organization level or at the project level. Each of these organizations requires a focus on high performance. This research brings together the last ten years of his work in strategy, virtual teams, innovation, knowledge management, and leadership. The goal is to develop a new theory of how project teams should be organized and developed. The following is a description of this research.
High performance engineering organizations actively incorporate learning, innovation, technology, collaboration, social factors, and engineering knowledge into every level of the organization. As the over-arching theme of his research interests, the study of how engineering organizations evolve into high performance entities has been the foundation of my long-term research strategy. This strategy has resulted in research efforts that have spanned a number of boundaries and funding opportunities.
Through support from the Construction Industry Institute, the National Science Foundation, and private companies including Parsons-Brinkerhoff and Zurich North America, He has pursued multiple perspectives within the high performance organizations context. Over the last decade, he has conducted research and authored papers for the engineering domain in the areas of strategic management, virtual teams, learning organizations, innovation, and leadership. The research experience gained from these efforts has culminated in the current work on a Social Network Model for Construction. Building on the research findings, he has led an effort to develop a new theory for the execution of construction projects based on the field of Social Network Analysis (SNA). In the first work to be published in the United States that applies the SNA concept in a new theoretical model for construction, Dr. Chinowsky has integrated the fields of engineering, sociology, and computer science to introduce an underlying formalization of how teams can achieve high performance results. The impact of this work is witnessed by the rapid dissemination of the results in both academic and industry circles. The American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) is aggressively bringing the results to member firms throughout the country which is resulting in a rapidly increasing number of requests to analyze company structures based on the new model. Additional industry collaborations are evolving with NASA, the US Air Force, Intel, the World Bank, and the Colorado DOT as organizations recognize the potential benefit of transforming their organization into a high performance entity. In the academic realm, new collaborations with domestic researchers from Stanford, Columbia, and Arizona State, as well as international researchers from Loughborough University are providing a unique opportunity to expand the current work as well as establish it as a foundational theory on which others can build.
