Abstract [en]

The expectations on IT-tools for improved business benefits are still high in Sweden. At the same time there is limited research on IT-tools in the organizational context and thus limited knowledge on the present state of IT in the Swedish construction sector. This article presents recent findings from a combined quantitative and qualitative study on IT, organization and communication in the Swedish construction sector. The purpose is to develop knowledge and understanding of the current situation in Sweden and to elaborate on future challenges. The findings show that the use of IT-tools is widely spread but that the knowledge and understanding of how to benefit from using IT-tools is less developed. The findings also indicate that the use of IT-tools in the production phase needs to be more interactive and proactive. This knowledge is of importance in order to allow informed decision-making in how to integrate IT-tools in the organizing and communication processes in construction projects, as well as how to do investments and develop practices, education and regulations. The conclusion is that project practitioners still search for the benefits of using IT-tools within construction projects.
