Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to identify factors influencing productivity and performance in the construction industry. The
research will review the literature across 60 references from numerous countries to identify the factors affecting
construction productivity generally. Then the researcher will use the mixed method approach involving qualitative and
quantitative data in the stage 2 of the research to have in-depth analysis.
The findings in the research will provide insights into the key factors affecting productivity in the construction industry
and other aspects of construction productivity such as: productivity definition, measurements to improve productivity
performance
