This impressive book challenges the orthodoxies that have dominated the construction management research (CMR) field for the past 50 years. Providing a comprehensive framework for understanding the complex and multi-faceted domain of construction, A Research Agenda for Construction Management sets out a range of alternative perspectives which problematise the axioms upon which much CMR knowledge is based and offers new directions for the research community to consider.

Chapters range from exploring approached to better understand the industry and its various functions, to discussing how alternative theoretical positions might be mobilised to shed new light on complex socio-economic activity. By challenging the ways in which construction is viewed, this Research Agenda subjects dominant research approaches and paradigms to critical scrutiny, ultimately encouraging future researchers to reflect on and adopt more creative and meaningful approaches to their work.

By identifying new and emergent themes and exploring how these can be researched, this incisive Research Agenda will be of considerable interest to researchers and academics in the field of construction management research. Its thought-provoking chapters will also make this a fitting read for research-engaged construction practitioners.
