Digitalization has become an important trend in many industries with a fast-paced market. But theconstruction industry is behind digitalization in comparison with other industries. The reason forthe lack of development is different. Many companies are not aware of the benefits of digitalization.Some are aware of but are risk-averse companies. Some are preoccupied with projects and cannotfind time to act. There are some commercial tools for measuring digital maturity. The mainchallenge is developing a framework which can measure better than existing ones. Thecharacteristic and process of such a framework were unclear at the beginning of this research effort.For attaining the research purpose, the deductive approach applied in the thesis as well asinductive. Analysis of data was qualitative, and the strategy was innovative exploratory. Literaturereview contributes to identifying some digital maturity tools in manufacturing and construction.With the evaluation of tools, research gaps identified. The initial process of measuring digital maturitysuggested. This model is inspired by performance measurement systems. The second and mainstep of the thesis was developing a holistic digital maturity framework using Pentagon model. Theprocess progressed until making a framework. The current research shows the building blocks ofdigital maturity framework (DMF). This framework is a useful guide for companies andresearchers toward the main components of digital maturity framework. In addition, it is afamiliarity with less considered criteria which are friendship, informal power, trust, etc. The thesissuggests the other researchers implement the framework in the real world with expert’s contribution.
