Specific assets (alpha = 0.64)[edit]

Items[edit]

  • If we had to switch to a different contractor during the project much of our investment would have to be made again.
  • If we had to switch to a different contractor during the project it would take some time for us to bring the new contractor up to speed on the technology.
  • The project required close working relationships between the contractor’s people and our people.

All items were measured on a scale ranging from 1, "completely inaccurate", to 7, "completely accurate".
