Despite the proliferation, in recent years, of new management initiatives in the UK and other construction industries, very little research attention has been directed towards understanding the mechanisms and processes by which such initiatives are implemented. This paper reports on research in the UK designed specifically to focus upon the challenges of implementation and the problems of attempting to diffuse knowledge about new, ways of working throughout the construction firm. The paper presents a discussion of the factors likely to influence the management of change within the construction firm and reports on the early stages of a research project designed to investigate the impact of new management initiatives within the construction firm.
