Purpose The aim of this research is to increase the understanding of how strategic and long-term innovation efforts can be organised, operated and co-created within a project-based organisational setting. Design/Methodology/Approach A case study with a qualitative approach was chosen, showing a critical case with powerful examples rather than representative samples, to draw conclusions from. The analysis builds on the concept of absorptive capacity, which provides a multidimensional perspective ...

The purpose of this paper is to investigate and compare in what ways different types of integrative and collaborative procurement strategies may enhance efficiency and innovation in public infrastructure projects. Further, implementation challenges are identified and discussed. Interview-based case studies were performed of ten infrastructure projects in Sweden and the Netherlands. The projects involve four types of collaborative procurement strategies - collaborative Design-Build (DB) contracts...

In design phases of large and complex infrastructure projects, a main challenge is to coordinate numerous technical specialists. Heuristics, or cognitive rules of thumb, is one factor that may influence the development of organisational structures and routines, especially if project management discretion is high: A longitudinal case study, comprising non-participant observation over three years, was carried out of the early design phase of a major railway tunnel project. Availability and familia...

In Sweden, a growing interest in social procurement and employment requirements is partly due to problems with segregation and high unemployment rates among immigrants. As a result, many municipalities and landlords see opportunities to combine construction projects with employment opportunities for tenants. Simultaneously, prognoses state that...
