The following dissertation studies Islamic supply chain management as taken from the food industry. The dissertation seeks to take the synonymous moral and contractual principles of Islamic supply chain management and apply them to the United Kingdom’s construction industry. Hereby, the dissertation endeavours to import a new concept into construction project management; akin to the importing of supply chain management principles from the manufacturing industry to the construction industry, by prominent individuals such as the late Professor Stephen Pryke. The focal points of this dissertation will be examining and applying key Islamic financial, contractual, and moral principle on the front-end of large-scale construction projects. The aim sought is to illustrate how longstanding behavioural, adversarial and transactional problems associated with the construction industry can be alleviated through the application of Islamic supply chain management principles. Thus, the author hopes that this dissertation can offer a new set of moral-based concepts that can become part of supply chain management’s greater academic literature.
