Abu Dhabi Police (ADP) is as a major client in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). ADP undertakes several capital projects every year; and uses two project managers (PMs) i.e., distributed leadership on their construction schemes. These dual PMs are chosen during the design stages of upcoming project schemes. A research did investigate the efficacy of this approach where 145 potential respondents were asked to complete a questionnaire survey and 90 (62%) responded. The data collected were analysed by descriptive and inferential statistics to reveal that more of the PMs perceived themselves to have more leadership than management characteristics. They also supported the use of distributed leadership which informed the development of a new practical framework for its implementation. This framework was validated with 10 top managers of ADP who supported its recommendation for adoption.
