AbstractUncertainty of eventual outcomes coupled with a reluctance to embark upon potentially long learning curves, have militated against much-needed holistic innovations in our instant-results-oriented construction industry. While sporadic initiatives towards new organizational and/or contractual arrangements have enabled incremental improvements in some scenarios, the increasing demand for step gains in construction industry performance levels evidently envisages a more solid launching pad with re-engineered paradigmatic foundations. Initial investigations suggest that the foregoing desired goals may be achieved together. Finally, a conceptual model that coherently synergises these strategies for institutional and industry development is presented and discussed.
