The building and construction product system : the emergence of new innovative businesses

Marceau, Jane & Manley, Karen (1999) The building and construction product system : the emergence of new innovative businesses. Department of Industry, Science and Resources, Canberra, ACT.


This report examines the conditions surrounding the emergence and growth of innovative new firms in the building and construction product system. The focus on innovative new firms was prompted by diverse literatures which highlight the pivotal roles of innovation and new business activity in driving economic growth. 9 The literature concludes that the founders of new firms are likely to be innovative and that new firms are likely to promote industry innovation and efficiency. New businesses have also been found to have positive employment impacts and to grow faster than established firms.
