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.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are 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.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
