Sammanfattning: Master thesis in the Business Administration and Economics Programme - Controller, School of Business and Economics at Linnaeus University in Växjö, 4FE18E, spring 2022.   Title: The impact of digitalization on management in the construction industry - An interview study on digital tools   Authors: Filip Euström & Sajjad Ameen Supervisor: Kim Eriksson Examiner: Jan Alpenberg   Background: The construction industry is often referred to as a conservative industry where changes are both difficult to get through and take a long time. Digitalization is an example where the construction industry has fallen behind. The industry often works with low margins, which means that efficiency and productivity play major roles. Digital tools can therefore contribute to higher efficiency and productivity.   Purpose: The purpose of the study is to contribute with an understanding of the ways in which digitalization has affected management accounting and management control as well as project management in the construction industry. Furthermore, the authors will also study how the construction industry has been affected by the development of digitalization in general.   Method: The authors have conducted a qualitative interview study where the empirical data consists of 13 semi-structured interviews with people from six different companies where they have different types of roles and experiences in the construction industry. With theory from scientific articles and literature, the collected empirical data could be analyzed.   Conclusion: The study has shown that digitalization has had a major impact on the construction industry, not least on management. The digital tools have not only improved the way the industry works, but it has also improved management accounting and management control as well as project management through, for example, systems that control, among other things, cost, schedule and quality. It has also been shown that training its existing staff is the answer to several of the challenges facing the construction industry.
