The 182-page book demonstrates that innovation continues to be prominent within the construction industry and that innovation can occur through leadership from competent clients who know what they want and are willing to work with the delivery team towards developing new processes and principles to achieve their goals. How stakeholders work together to solve problems is a key focus of this publication. It analyses the role of the client in the innovation process throughout the construction industry. Incorporating different industrial and organisational settings from a range of perspectives, this volume provides frameworks, concepts and case studies to further the knowledge and understanding of the client in the innovation processand establishes an agenda for capitalising on the benefits of innovation in construction.
The rich array of case studies translates some of the research results into a broader organisational and industry context. The lessons from the cases establish good-practice examples that demonstrate ways of addressing real problems or offering new ways of thinking about old problems. The recurring themes of innovation, relationships and collaboration are allied to the need to work together in new ways to prevent the innovation lag time, ensure that innovation meets the needs of all stakeholders and is able to be implemented across the industry.
