Abstract With increasingly tighter profit margins and lower productivity rates being experienced, particularly in Australia, rework is untenable as business competitiveness is severely jeopardized. In this paper a case study of a A$375 million program alliance that was charged to deliver 129 water infrastructure projects over a five-year period, which instigated a 'Rework Prevention Program' as a performance improvement initiative is presented. The case study provides empirical evidence of how coaching engendered by authentic leadership enabled the translation from individual learning into collective learning (i.e. enacting behaviours, enacting a coaching approach and embedding collective learning processes) to occur within the alliance. The case study offers a learning opportunity for other organizations that are confronted with rework in their projects.
