Abstract

This chapter reviews the mainstream theories that have been described in the previous chapters (Chaps.  2,  3 and  4) for implementation by contractors. It starts from describing the implementation of organizational management and traditional organizational theory, including systems theory, contingency theory, complexity theory, and change management. Furthermore, the implementations of crisis management and BCM in construction are discussed. The final section elaborates culture in organization and institutional theory’s role in construction.
