This innovative Handbook aims to look at the logic, various dimensions, and implications of collaboration in construction. It opens with a conceptualization of collaboration and its accompanying terms (i.e., cooperation and coordination) and continues with chapters in Part I which discuss the theoretical grounds of collaboration between individuals and organizations from the viewpoints of an impressive variety of relevant disciplines including organizational science; anthropology; law; economics; design; and production.

This is followed by discussions of the essence and value of collaboration in construction in Part II through explaining the role of collaborative project delivery methods and their benefits in advancing collaboration, describing the competency profile of project managers for collaborative construction, explaining key drivers and barriers of collaboration in construction, and explaining practices as well as challenges of measuring collaboration in construction.

Then, in Part III, case projects are employed to explain the benefits of collaboration in different levels of team, project, and business, to discuss the role and impact of collaboration on site and bridging the divide between construction and facility management, to discuss the role of digitalization in facilitating and advancing collaboration, to explain collaboration in decision making, to present examples of collaborative visual management, and to outline the implications of stakeholders' early involvement and collaboration for project success. Finally, consideration is given to the future of collaboration in construction to conclude the book.

This Handbook is key reading for a broad ranging audience within the fields of construction, project, infrastructure and engineering management, organisational science, economics, and business management.

Sina Moradi (0000-0002-2990-3671) is currently a Postdoctoral Researcher of Construction Management at Tampere University in Finland, where he completed his PhD in August 2021. Dr. Moradi has been involved in academia and industry altogether for twelve years, and as a result he has gained experience of working both in construction projects (as supervisor and scheduling expert) and in academia (as researcher and lecturer). In the recent five years, the focus of his research activities and publications has been on collaborative project delivery, lean construction, project success, sustainability in building contruction, and project managers' competencies. Kalle Kahkoenen (0000-0002-8986-7721) is Professor of Construction Management and Economics at Tampere University in Finland. His former employer was VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland. Prof. Kahkoenen's main research interests and activities are presently addressing collaborative construction operations and digitalization in the built environment sector. He has acted as supervisor, pre-examiner, or opponent for over 30 doctoral dissertations in Finland and abroad. Lauri Koskela (0000-0003-4449-2281) is Adjunct Professor at Tallinn University of Technology. Previously he worked at the University of Huddersfield as Professor of Construction and Project Management and at the University of Salford as Professor of Lean, Theory-Based Project, and Production Management. Since 1991, Lauri has been involved in research on lean construction. His research has focused especially on the theory of production management underlying lean construction. Ole Jonny Klakegg (0000-0002-1767-0911) is Professor of Project Management at NTNU Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, focusing on project delivery models. Throughout his career, Ole Jonny Klakegg has alternated between teaching and research at the university and working as a consultant in project management. This way he has built substantial experience including theoretical and practical perspectives. He has 30 years of experience in research, teaching, and consulting within project management, including 15 years of experience as manager and consultant in the private sector.
