IN: PREPARING FOR CONSTRUCTION IN THE 21ST CENTURY, PROCEEDINGS OF CONSTRUCTION CONGRESS '91, SPONSORED BY THE AMERICAN SOCIETY OF CIVIL ENGINEERS IN COOPERATION WITH THE AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF MINING ENGINEERS AND THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION, CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS, APRIL 13-16, 1991

Increased complexity of facilities, owners' changing needs, inadequate construction methods, and international competition have created strong demands for advanced construction technology. Recent developments in computer technologies provide the Architecture-Engineering-Construction (AEC) industry with significant potential for innovation. This paper describes, refines, and expands the process of technology transfer in an organization. Understanding the technology transfer process, recognizing its players, and identifying the critical factors affecting it will lead to practical recommendations for increasing the rate of construction innovation and technology transfer.
