Abstract Continuous process improvement via the strategic implementation of innovative information and communication technologies is essential for the long-term survival of construction firms. Some have successfully grasped the opportunities enabled by IT enhanced information management systems to develop new low-cost business models. However, not all proactive construction businesses have been satisfied with their IT investments, largely due to their limited ability to evaluate the degree of IT-induced valued added to operational and business performance. This article builds upon recently published work by the author, by empirically investigating the link between 'Construct IT' Balanced Scorecard (BSC) perspectives, utilizing structural equation modeling. Moreover, the validity of developed path equations for predicting IT-induced business performance and strategic competitiveness is reinforced through benchmarking studies, conducted on two large infrastructure projects constructed in Australia, where innovative web-based collaboration platforms were implemented.
