Managing a large scale distributed engineering project needs skilled, motivated and committed personnel. Unified and aligned working methods are needed. Project alignment is the process of ensuring that key stakeholders share a common understanding of the project mission, goals, objectives, tactics, work processes and plans and have the required competences and skills. Based on current advancement in the area of collaborative networked organisations, project management and Internet web 2.0 technologies, we have identified further needs and opportunities for development in the area Collaborative Project Management. The Project Alignment Booster is a set of software services used to promote collaborative project management. The tool has been developed to suit industrial requirement in the area of large and complicated engineering project management. The paper reports the results of developing a toolkit to support collaborative project alignment
