An examination of how new products and processes are developed specifically in or for the building sector; a discussion of what constrains their dissemination; and a theory of how success can be determined. The dialogue established with the students in the subject has a strong comparative bent, and seeks to emphasise how technological innovation in building takes on a different meaning depending on industrial context, markets and economic cycles. Australian government positions and characteristics of the Australian industry are compared to other geographic realities to emphasise this point. Overall, attention is directed at distinguishing innovation from invention and technological change.
