Abstract

Within the construction industry's global landscape, innovative technologies for construction project management are continually emerging, yet the rate of failed projects within the Nigerian construction sector due to poor coordination of construction tasks is on the rise. An unanswered question in the literature remains as to why construction project managers in Nigeria remain slow to adopt new technologies for improving decision-making processes and project success rates. This narrative literature review, being an extract of a broader qualitative single case study with embedded units on the perceptions of construction project managers in Nigeria regarding their barriers to technology adoption framed by two conceptual models: Usman and Said’s model of factors contributing to information and communication technology adoption in Nigerian construction firms and Waziri, Mustapha, and Idris’ model of factors influencing IT adoption in Nigerian construction organizations. This literature review supports future research on this subject and also evidenced, theoretically the concepts of technology awareness (TA) and technology adoption readiness (TAR) while addressing the technology adoption gap among the construction project managers in Nigeria to lower construction project failure rate and industry and opening new opportunities for improved project delivery in the Nigerian national economy.

Keywords: Project failure, technology adoption, technology adoption barriers, awareness, innovative construction technology, construction project manager, technology adoption readiness, Nigerian construction industry
