Competitiveness of Indonesian Construction Industry is in question. It is necessary to address the problem soonest so that persistence situation can be improved. To find the solution for this problem this research therefore conducted. The research are conducted in two steps, the purpose of the first step is to determine the problem of the Indonesian construction industry, second step is to built a soft system dynamics model through a soft system modelling and structural equation modelling. Data were collected from various sources such as World Bank Institute, Freedom House, International Corruption Watch, UNDP, Indonesian Statistics Office and Bank Indonesia. Primary data was collected from Indonesian Construction Industry Players. This study indicates that: higher educated human resources in construction industry are not effectively support the productivity of the industry; construction industry players tend to consider short term benefit than long term sustainability and growth; strategic planning time horizon consideration contribute significantly in long term productivity. It is suggested that to improve productivity of Indonesian construction industry several step should be taken: marketing orientation should be changed toward more sophisticated project, institution for collaboration in construction industry should be initiated and high governance should be established and maintained

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.
