Abstract:Projects in the Dutch construction industry become more complex and dynamic. The different aspects of the building process have to be integrated. The most important role of the systems integrator within this construction network is to organize the activities within the infrastructural network in such a way that they match the constantly changing demands of the client in the innovation superstructure. For these activities a network has to be set up and maintained. Setting up and maintaining a network consists of several steps. The required steps have been defined by the output of literature study, a case study constisting a market-, organization- and network exploration. Through a selection of respondents and organizations/institutions a cross-case method is used to analyze the results of this research. On the basis of these outcomes the recommendations for small-, medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) turning from jobber into systems integrator are formulated.
