Improving Construction Cooperation: New Theoretical Insights Into How and Why
The real mechanism for cooperation is poorly understood by most people in the construction industry. This book addresses this widening hiatus in construction management literature by casting a completely new theoretical perspective on the study of construction cooperation at a deeper level. The success of projects is dependent on developing a cooperative project culture. The micro-level characteristic of individual project groups are considered. It provides the reader with an understanding of how, why and when organisational identification acts as a potentially powerful vehicle for improving cooperation within the construction industry. It will be of use to construction academics and postgraduate students studying construction management research. It will also appeal to industrialists charged with managing change, as well as those working within architecture and surveying.
