But owners, as well as the firm as such, also possess several indirect relationships that could be highly relevant in many business network situations. The purpose of this pap...

This fragmentation has been identified as problematic for the industry’s ability to innovate and engage in renewal. The purpose of this paper is to investigate this further by focusing on how construction companies manage renewal i...
