Relationships in dispersed project teams are based on technical integration, contractual agreements, and common access to information sources, knowledge exchange, or any combination of these. In order to move forward on collaborative relationships (CRs) between project team whose members are no longer sitting together in close proximity, this paper – based on a review of the existent literature – aims to provide an integrative model to comprehensively assess CRs among the project team members. This framework will be used to characterize and analyze the properties of the collaborative ties among project team partners, and to assess the impact of the contributory factors on the dimensions of collaboration as well. Findings reveal, that project team members who communicate more frequently with each other are the most likely to show higher intensity of collaboration. Likewise, the structural predictors were also statistically significant.
