A review of international construction research: Ranko Bon's contribution
Literature on international construction is rich in adopting conceptual frameworks to investigate levels of international competitiveness and making inter-country comparisons about sources of national competitive advantage. However, there are limited studies that result from collaborative work between different country researchers about development of custom frameworks to investigate complexities of international construction business, experience-based generic libraries applicable to international construction projects and forecasting models. Ranko Bon's contribution to the international construction literature is invaluable as he has dealt with broad trends and dominant patterns of change in the global construction market by referring to judgments of experts from all over the world and helped dissemination of this practical information which may be used by policy makers and construction professionals seeking jobs in the global market.
