A Review of Frameworks for Analyzing International Construction

Sources of national competitive advantage for international construction have long been discussed by researchers working in the field of construction management. Yet, there is no consensus on a single framework that can be used for analyzing international competitiveness. The aim of this paper is to discuss the applicability of Porter’s diamond framework and its variations to the construction industry and propose an agenda for further research. It is argued that the focus of research should be on interrelations between determinants rather than discussing the determinants in isolation. Furthermore, rather than single-country assessments, researchers may be involved in a collaborative work to investigate cases from all over the world and construct a construction-specific framework to investigate international competitiveness
