Abstract

Current research, in conjunction with the Cooperative Research Centre for Construction Innovation (Australia), is investigating the role of greater corporate responsibility in the provision of urban infrastructure projects. This paper reports on doctoral research which is enabling project teams to better identify and align project objectives with corporate objectives, thus assisting in managing future risk and possible ecological and social harm. The research methodology in use is based on Checkland's soft system methodology, engaging in action-research with Brisbane City Council (Australia) on three case study projects. Key findings of the collaborative case studies include: • Linking project objectives to corporate objectives provides greater decision-making transparency; increased rigor in establishing objectives; and greater awareness of project opportunities. • Using an iterative process to identify the project's stakeholder footprint and accountabilities, at the pre-feasibility phase, can better inform the subsequent project phases. • Developing project indicators, measureables and targets, linked to corporate objectives can enhance decision-making transparency and communication.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
