Leadership, Preventive management, Business Continuity management.


         This study examines the intricate relationships between leadership, preventive management, and business continuity management in the construction industry. The research was conducted in Bangkok with the following objectives in mind: 1) to investigate the role and impact of leadership on the implementation of preventive management measures and the protection of business continuity; 2) to evaluate the prominence of preventive management within the broader framework of business continuity management, with a specific focus on the management of internal and external threats; and 3) to derive valuable insights that can not only be applied to Bangkok but also to other locations. To this purpose, 265 construction administrators were given a comprehensive questionnaire, including general managers, site managers, site engineers, and project managers. The acquired data were analyzed using Structural Equation Modeling (SEM), a robust statistical method that measures intricate interrelationships.

          The findings reveal that leadership significantly influences the formulation and implementation of preventive management strategies, directly impacting business continuity. In addition, preventive management has emerged as a crucial pillar of business continuity management, emphasizing the need to identify and proactively resolve internal and external organizational threats. These results demonstrate that effective leadership and well-structured preventive management are crucial for ensuring business continuity, particularly in industries prone to disruptions. The findings of this study not only contribute to the academic comprehension of leadership and business continuity management and provide strategies for industry practitioners and policymakers. This study paves the way for future research across various industry landscapes and cultures by illuminating the dynamics of leadership behaviors in crisis management
