Abstract:     
We empirically investigated the importance of team culture in multiple project management settings, where one project manager leads multiple simultaneous projects. Surprisingly, findings show that team culture does not contribute significantly to the success of a project in a multiple-project management setting. Other factors, e.g., leader competencies, contribute more significantly to project success. We provide implications for individuals assigned to lead multiple projects concurrently.
