Dr Christiono Utomo S.T., M.T.


Collaborative design process in a construction projects involves designers whom have various expertise. The process requires integrated design object and design team. Knowledge management plays an important role in supporting the process. Leadership style is required to mediate the implementation of knowledge management in improving the performance of team to achieve the best design. This study aims to develop a theoretical model through literature review and surveys. Literature of leadership style, knowledge management, and collaborative design are comprehensively reviewed. The scope of literature review mainly discussing the content background of the problem, methodology and research results. Literature review is used to build the theoretical model. Confirmatory study is applied by using Structural Equation Modeling (SEM). The result of this study is a theoretical model on the effect of leadership style and knowledge management toward successful collaborative design.
