Knowledge requirements and market context for
international construction industr



The paper examines knowledge and competences used in different market context when construction firms operate internationally. Construction organization active on international market are required to adapt on specific market demands to achieve competitive performance. To deepen the understanding on the issue, authors have taken a qualitative insight through exploratory research which has brought two conclusions: Organizations, when analyzed through its functional structure, have different market context exposure and specialist contractors require less local specific knowledge for competitive performance as they keep lower market exposure than general contractors.
