Kajewski, Stephen L., Tilley, Paul A., Crawford, John R., Remmers, Todd R., Chen, Swee-Eng, Lenard, Dennis, Brewer, Graham, Gameson, Rod, Kolomy, Richard, Martins, Rui, Sher, Willy, Weippert, Achim, Caldwell, Geoff, & Haug, Mark (2001) Industry Culture: A Need for Change. QUT.


The Cooperative Research Centre for Construction Innovation (CRC CI) research project 2001-008-C: 'Project Team Integration: Communication, Coordination and Decision Support', is supported by a number of Australian industry, government and university based project partners including: Queensland University of Technology (QUT); Commonwealth Scientific Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), University of Newcastle; Queensland Department of Public Works (QDPW); and the Queensland Department of Main Roads (QDMR). Supporting the project’s research aims and objectives, and as a major deliverable for the project, this report is not intended as a comprehensive statement of the construction industry's need or ability to change its existing culture. Rather, this report provides an overall snapshot of 'general' industry organisation experiences, characteristics and cultural attributes towards implementing a cultural or technological driven change, and considered as 'background literature' to an on-going and in-depth PhD investigation into AEC industry specific organisations and project team member values, attitudes and beliefs, etc. towards a technology driven culture change.

Search Google Scholar™

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.
