Team Dynamics – Utilizing Teams to Speed Improvements and Implementation

Today’s demanding construction environment requires speed, skill, and the latest in innovation. In order to successfully navigate the tremendous amount of change required to keep up, the utilization of cross functional teams becomes a must.

Not only does this approach ensure that oversights are minimized, but it allows for the people who will live with the results to define the path. During this interactive session, Stephane McShane will engage with attendees on the following topics:

  • Why team strategies are so successful
  • Define how to create the right cross functional team
  • Describe the development of multi-level subject matter experts
  • Show the best practices regarding training and communication
  • Outline a case study where teams were utilized to ensure aligned vision and success in planning for the future
