The project-based organizations engaging in engineering consultancy are at the early stage in China. For the manager of China, how to conduct the organization design for them according to contextuality that characterizes the conditions of China is an important issue. First, the factors that affect the performance of this type of the project-based organization of China are analyzed. Then, the organizational design model that has both the advantages of NK model and the ones of complementarity

The impacts of the interactions among the design dimensions of organization, capability to gain resource and turbulence of the environment on the organizational design are researched with simulation approach. Furthermore, the qualitative demonstration of the model is done with data and materials gathered from the actual cases. Last, the implications of the results are put forward. 1 2723 978-1-4244-5771-7/09/$26.00 ©2009 IEEE
