Impact of Government and Corporate Strategy on the Performance of Technology Projects in Road Construction

This study focuses on road construction, and also analyzes technology development projects. Based on business strategies and the literature on technology policy, the authors test the relative importance of a firm's strategies and government as a buyer and champion. The empirical findings stress the value of government championing behavior. The results show that in road construction, championing behavior is more important than public technology procurement for project performance. The results even suggest that government championship is more important than a firm's strategic orientation.
