Performance improvement in construction management. Edited by Brian Atkin and Jan Borgbrant, Spon Press, London, 2009. 330pp, ISBN 978-0-415-54598-3, £80 (hb)

Novel research in construction management is often distant from existing practice. This collection of reviews serves to bridge this gap under three major themes: innovation, organisation and human behaviour, and methods and tools. It outlines a series of successful collaborative projects between industry and the academic and research communities. Many of the authors have worked in technology transfer, as change agents, resolving industrially-relevant problems by using scientifically-based research.
