Traditional organizational studies emphasize department groupings and the management style of differentorganizations that are often based on common tasks, products, geography and processes. They also mainlyemphasize the connection between construction supply chain and procurement methods but have not analysedof how external factors shape the organization structure and consequently the supply chain. Three things areanalysed: the impact of competitive pressure, required competence and degree of flexibility on various modes ofconstruction organization used for producing multi-family residential housing in Sweden from a transactioncost theory perspective. Organization structures depend on the level of project engagement, competencedemanded by the preferred organization mode as well as the economic environment, and the level ofconstruction activities.
