Research and Innovation Change Management in the Canadian Construction Industry

The purpose of the internship is to identify the existing status of research and innovation (R&I) processes in the Canadian construction industry. The internship will look at target levels and the extent of research and innovation (R&I) based in part on comparisons elsewhere. The intern will also research the barriers to change and an implementation plan to effect change. Through the research, resources and tools to assist the Canadian construction R&I process will be available, and a change management roadmap and implementation plan will be developed. The research results will benefit the partner in promoting and advancing research and innovation processes within the Canadian construction industry, as well as benefit all Canadian construction companies to accomplish research and innovation activities.
