Distributing Resources in a Construction Project: Conflictual Cooperation about a Common Cause and its Theoretical Implications

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review


In the present paper some concrete empirical material from a construction project will be presented. It will lend arguments for forming a set of conceptions around cooperation. The first conception is about conflictual cooperation, which is understood as participants cooperating about a common contradictory cause, having each their perspective on the common cause, and therefore constantly confronted with the possibility of reorganization and conflict. The second one is a closer look at the differentiated activities in cooperation. It is about procedures, which are seen as complexly interwoven activities. They are constituted by reciprocally reorganized, anticipated results, acquisition of resources and arrangements of activities and things therein. The last conception is about theories in cooperation, which are understood as dissolving in praxis.
