Abstract: Argues that the management of quality in the construction industry is often flawed by people-related problems. Suggests that there is tremendous scope for applying Miyamoto Musashi's lessons in A Book of Five Rings for overcoming some of these problems and for managing construction quality. Just as the Samurai strives to perfect his killer instinct, the application of the Samurai way in the building industry can serve to achieve getting the construction quality right first time, every time. Provides a historical account of Miyamoto Musashi's A Book of Five Rings, highlights its teachings and analyses how these can be adapted or applied for managing construction quality more effectively in the building industry.
