Alliancing in Australia - a long term JV?
Rowlinson, Steve & Cheung, Yan Ki Fiona (2008) Alliancing in Australia - a long term JV? In Brown, Kerry, Hampson, Keith D., Brandon, Peter S., & Pillay, Janet (Eds.) Clients driving construction innovation: benefiting from innovation. Icon.Net Pty Ltd, Brisbane, Australia.
In both mainstream and construction management literature, there has been a steady rise in the number of papers reporting studies on the implicit link between organisational culture and performance (Handy, 1985; Wood, Ellis, 2005). Benefits of partnering such as win-win relationships, time and cost savings, trust, motivation and open communication are highlighted in a stream of literature (Bennett, Jayes, 1998; Wood, Ellis, 2005; Wood, McDermott, Swan, 2002; Bresnen, Marshall, 2000). Numerous reports published in the past decade, such as the Tang Report on Construct for Excellence: Report of the Construction Industry Review Committee, the Hong Kong Housing Authority report on Quality Housing: Partnering for Change, Building for Growth by Australia NatBACC and the Egan report on Rethinking Construction, all indicate the way forward for the construction industry. These reports advocate a move away from adversarial relationships and towards the use of relational contracting approaches. However, such approaches require a culture change.
