Abstract We reveal the ICT adoption strategic focus and implementation processes undertaken by six significant Australian construction companies and we also examine the nature of the supply chain relationships associated with their ICT adoption. We present a model to categorise and provide a profile of innovation diffusion adoption based upon an innovator to laggard normal distribution curve. Our findings indicate commitment to a strategic ICT adoption vision and the importance of both a top-down and bottom-up implementation strategy to manage organisational change and supply chain relationships through ICT adoption for the six companies.
