This paper explores the cognitive strategies that construction practitioners rely on when searching to identify risks in a simulated project. By using the active information search methodology in interviews with 45 industry practitioners, we were able to distinguish three stereotypical information search strategies that provide indication for the underlying cognitive strategies. The paper furthermore discusses the impact of the followed cognitive strategy on risk identification performance.
