|Abstract:||Experience in the Singapore construction industry shows that a rapid increase in productivity can be achieved through the prefabrication method of construction. The aim of this study is to identify the organisational culture and management processes at the Housing and Development Board's (HDB) Prefabrication Technology Centre (PTC) that have helped to promote innovation in prefabrication for public housing. This is achieved by comparing PTC's management processes with the relevant theories on organisational culture. Recommendations are made in this study for improvements which would benefit the wider prefabrication industry in Singapore and at the same time, contribute to understanding how appropriate management processes can lead to successful innovation for the industry.|
