Identifying the Role of Supply Chain Integration Practices in the Adoption of Systemic Innovations

The construction industry structure resists the adoption of systemic innovations because they cross professional and trade specializations, break industry standards, and redefine how existing modules are produced or fit together. Prior research has identified that vertical and/or horizontal integration in the supply chain makes it far more likely that systemic innovations will be adopted. This paper identifies how nine specific supply chain integration practices (e.g., multiparty contracts, colocated project teams, and digital building information modeling) facilitate mechanisms of supply chain integration and increase the adoption of systemic innovation within the collaborative project delivery of complex projects.
