  1. 1. Procurement Contracts, Innovation and Productivity in the Construction Sector : Five Studies

    Author : Lena Borg; Hans Lind; Han-Suck Song; Johan Nyström; Anne Landin; KTH; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Procurement Contracts; Innovation; Productivity; Construction Sector; Incentives; Entreprenadkontrakt; Innovationer; Produktivitet; Byggsektorn; Incitament; Fastigheter och byggande; Real Estate and Construction Management;

    Abstract : With its size, large number of actors, and its impact on everyday life, the construction sector plays an important role in every nation’s economy and in the improvement of the built environment. The recognition of this fact by the sector, in combination with the reputation for being conservative, problematic, having low productivity growth, and low pressure for change leads to a focus on different strategies that can be used to improve of the sector.
