Final conditions

Initial conditions

Time

  • The more info we have before the event, the easier it is to predict the final outcome

  • The less info we have before the event, the harder it is to predict the final outcome

  • However, the lack of info will never change the final outcome

  • Probability occurs when people don’t understand

  • Must think proactively – not reactively


Effective leadership

Effective Leadership

  • Leadership is notabout control

  • Leadership is about the ability to perceive, in essence tolook ahead, thenallocatethe resources (human & capital) in the best possible way.

  • Jim Collins referred to this as “Getting the right people on the bus in the right seats.”

  • “Leadership is the capacity to engage people & groups outside one’s formal control & inspire them to work toward common goals – despite differences in convictions, cultural values, and operating norms.” H. Ibarra & M. Hansen


Strategic thinking

Strategic Thinking

  • Effective planning – whether a company’s strategic plan, project planning, or solving a problem – requires Strategic Thinking

  • EffectiveStrategic Thinking requires leadership and a process

  • 5 – Step Strategic Thinking process

    • Get the right people involved

    • Define the problem

    • Develop possible solutions

    • Identify the right options

    • Execute the strategy


Value based construction

Value-based Construction

  • Upstream activities (sourcing, production, & logistics) are being commoditized, while downstream activities that reduce customer’s costs or risks are becoming the drivers of value creation & a competitive advantage

  • Need to focus on pre-construction activities

  • Need to focus on life-cycle costs


Continuous innovation

Continuous Innovation

  • “Tomorrow’s victories will go to the masters of innovation! Period!” Tom Peters

  • What’s the purpose of outsourcing?

    • Innovation!

  • Focus on desired outcomes – not fixing a problem

  • Keys to innovation

    • Continuous learning

    • Continuous improvement

    • Empowering everyone


360 collaboration

360° Collaboration

  • The more complex a system the greater the need for collaboration

  • Involve the people who must do it

  • IPD/Design-build works because it embraces collaboration between all supply chain members

  • What’s the most important task for PM’s and superintendents?

    • Identifying client problems


Questions

Questions?


Final thoughts

Final Thoughts

  • Challenge conventional wisdom

  • Throw away the box! Think big – not small

  • Stop thinking as a contractor – think like someone out to find solutions

  • Accept that change is coming to the contracting business – like it or not – or you will lose the battle!

  • Is it easy? Absolutely not, but it’s better than doing the same old things!
