Effective leadership and collaboration is critical for achieving sustained performance, growth and competitiveness in the face of uncertainty, complexity and change that characterized construction companies.
Construction organizations are extremely fragmented. There are separate BU’S with separate departments supported by separate systems for design, estimating, procurement, valuations, and construction planning and in many cases, even the planning process itself is carried out in a different method at conceptual and design stage to that used to manage the project during construction. Building a company wide effective leadership and collaborative environment are unrealistic under these circumstances.
A comprehensive program to link organizational strategy, structure, processes, systems, operations, and people need to be designed following the “design thinking/ doing” method which is based on developing a thorough understanding of what the organization and user’s goals are from multiple viewpoints: emotional, psychological, and behavioral through an iterative process of observation, ideation, rapid prototyping and testing.
