Abstract [en]

In construction business, implementation of innovations seems to be difficult especially when high-technology is involved. There are some observed barriers such as its cyclical nature and project-based working which are not ideal for implementing processes. This paper highlights leadership skills instead of traditional skills from the management and suggests that there is a need to change some human resource management practices. In projects-based industry, learning processes must happen in the projects themselves and cooperation between projects is highly important. Also good communication skills and channels are essential. Innovations and leadership have a crucial role in this process.
