Abstract: Corporate relocation projects represent a sizable portion of the workload of the service sector of the property and facilities management industry in most developed economies. However, the successful outcomes of such projects are often not guaranteed. This paper reports on a research project that examines project failures in corporate relocations with the objective of developing a systematic framework for evaluating the processes involved in corporate relocation projects. A literature review of factors affecting project failures classified problems encountered under four broad headings: general management, project management, finance and technology. Responses from a questionnaire survey of client and supplier organizations which had involvement with relocation projects (N=48) formed the basis of data analysis. The questionnaire covered respondents’ details, motivation for initiating the relocation and a Likert scale ranking of statements covering the entire corporate relocation process from the feasibility study stage through to the post-move administration stage. The results of the questionnaire survey provided the basis for the development of a systematic framework for corporate relocation which was validated through three detailed case studies of completed relocation projects. The outcome from the research is a corporate relocation model in the form of a flowchart that acts as a checklist for monitoring corporate relocation projects.
