Paper Title
An Effective Partnering Implementation Framework For Managing Engineering Projects

Partnering has gained attention from both practitioners and academia since its development in the 1980s. This paper aims to supplement the literature by shedding light on the issues and processes of implementing partnering. Based on the findings of a research study on partnering application in the utility business in Hong Kong, this paper proposes a framework for an effective partnering implementation, covering commercial, managerial and implementation perspectives. The proposed framework essentially sketches the tools and practices required for an effective partnering implementation. Keywords- Partnering, Implementation, Framework, Hong Kong
