|Publication Authors||Ibironke O. T., Adedokun, O. A and Hungbo, A. A.|
Motivation is the set of processes that determine the choices people make about their behaviours. Implementing a well formulated motivation policy triggers the innate qualities of labourers (employees) by enhancing their productivity. This study investigates the drivers of motivation for casual workers on the construction sites by

|Publication Title||Assessment Of Competitive Tendering Methods Of Procuring Educational Building Projects In Nigeria|
|Publication Authors||O.A. Adedokun, O.T. Ibironke and S.O. Babatunde|
Purpose – This paper assessed educational building projects with a view to determining the level of utilization of competitive tendering methods, factors influencing their choice and predisposition to risk factors in order to
Design/ methodology/approach – The paper assessed the level of utilization of competitive tendering methods, the factors influencing their choice and finally the predisposition of each of the methods to risk factors
Findings – It was found that the usage of open competitive tendering methods outweighed selective tendering method of procurement as a result of accountability and price competition involved which made it predisposed to not only financial risk factors but also political and logistics factors.
Research limitations/implications – Multiple-choice questionnaire administered to the respondents (Architects, Quantity Surveyors, Builders, Structural Engineers, Civil Engineers, Mechanical & Electrical Engineers) was limited to the selected institutions in the southwestern zone of Nigeria.
Practical implications – The most widely adopted method (open competitive tendering method) suffers from risk factors like selective but high premium should be placed on financial and logistic risk factors in order to achieve hitch free construction project delivery. These measures will help the stakeholders in assessing degrees of project complexity and better manage the potential risks that might be induced to different levels of competitive tendering methods of project procurement in relation to educational building projects.
Originality/value – This empirical investigation provides strong evidence on the procurement of educational building projects in response to due process policy. The findings provided insightful perspectives to define and understand project complexity. For stakeholders, understanding and addressing the complexity help to improve

|Publication Title||VULNERABILITY OF MOTIVATION SCHEMES IN ENHANCING SITE WORKERS PRODUCTIVITY FOR CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY’S SUSTAINABILITY IN NIGERIA|
|Publication Authors||Adedokun, O. A., Ibironke, O. T. and Olanipekun, A. O|
The construction industry provides appreciable employment for the unskilled and semi-skilled labour considering the nature of most activities carried out on construction sites. However, the productivity of this categories of labour have trended poor overtime. This study therefore assessed the financial and non financial motivational schemes; in light of their preference to construction site workers so as to assure on their vulnerability in enhancing productivity. The data collected through the administration of questionnaires to construction site operatives were analysed using the relative importance index (RII). The research instrument was also legitimized with content validity index (CVI) for items ≥ 0.80 and cronbach alpha value, as a measure of internal consistency, ≥ 0.70. Allowances, wages stock option and bonuses are the financial motivators while delegation, independence and autonomy, facilities for transportation are the non financial motivations that are important to site workers on construction sites. Giving praises, encouragement to make contributions, free medical care, availability of relaxation centres and first aid provision are the motivation schemes that site operatives believed to enhance their productivity. This paper concludes that both financial and non financial motivational schemes are important to enhancing the productivity of operatives on construction sites. The vulnerable motivational schemes to the enhancement of productivity, as revealed in this study is recommended to the construction and subcontracting firms, foremen, clerk of works, site supervisors, site engineers and all other stakeholders in ensuring a maximum output for a unit input from site operatives.
|Publication Title||Evaluation Of Qualitative Risk Analysis Techniques In Selected Large Construction Companies In Nigeria|
|Publication Authors||Adedokun, O.A., Ogunsemi, D.R., Aje, I.O., Awodele, O.A. and Dairo, D.O.|
Design/ methodology/approach – Questionnaire survey and in-depth interview were employed in gathering data for the study. The paper assessed the level of knowledge, awareness, utilization success and the factors affecting the utilization of qualitative risk analysis techniques. The primary data employed were obtained by using multiple-choice questionnaire administered to the selected large construction firms in Nigeria.
Research limitations/implications – Multiple-choice questionnaires administered to the respondents (Architects, Quantity Surveyors, Builders, Structural Engineers, Civil Engineers, Mechanical & Electrical Engineers) were limited to the selected large construction firms in the category D of the Nigerian Federal Tender Board.
Practical implications – The construction sector has not taken full advantage of QRAT in the analysis of risks inherent in construction projects. This has been responsible for cost and time overruns usually recorded. Analysing risks will help the stakeholders in assessing degrees of project complexity and better manage the potential risks that might be induced to different levels of construction projects in Nigeria in order to achieve
Originality/value – This empirical inquiry provides strong evidence on the state of qualitative risk analysis techniques of construction projects in Nigeria. The findings provide insightful perspectives to understand construction project QRAT in its entirety. For stakeholders, understanding and addressing the complexity help to improve project planning and implementation.
