Zjila Darvishi Postin Doz, Islamic Azad University, Tabriz, Iran, ID CLEaR2017-407; Abstract: There may be a danger of the construction industry not keeping pace with the advances in management efficiencies that have become common-place in the general business and management environment. Communication is among important factors in the construction industry, and often problems in construction projects management are referred to as communication problems. Due to its specific characteristics, the construction industry requires a complex communication environment which is usually a fragmented and dynamic sector with a project-based nature. This makes many stakeholders operate in frequently changing sets of relationships which are contractually created and driven.
The goal of this research is to discuss the role of communication in construction project management, especially large scale projects in Iran. To define the problem in more detail and to define a more specific research goal, the paper will start with two studies; literature on communication in construction and interviews with experts in the construction industry of Iran.
