This book offers new theoretical and practical insights and models, grounded in descriptive case studies and action research which focus on innovation in small, project-based construction firms. The findings will be contextualised in the broader literature to make them of relevance to policy makers, practitioners and researchers interested in small, project-based firms in general."--BOOK JACKET." ;
