This chapter explores the leadership strategies for global supply chain management in the construction sector. The United Arab Emirates (UAE) construction sector, which played a pivotal role in transforming UAE to a modern economy from a nomadic one is used as an exemplary case in this study to understand the leadership strategies required for developing ‘globalness’ in their construction supply chain. Using secondary research and interviews with stakeholders in the construction supply chain, the study proposes leadership strategies in four key areas: 1) policymaking, 2) technology and innovation, 3) environmental supply chain management, and 4) international collaboration/partnerships. The findings are useful for practitioners and policymakers in improving the global competitiveness of their construction sector and its supply chain.
