At the Constructing Excellence Procurement Group Meeting on 19 March there was considerable debate on the blockers and potential solutions to procuring for value. The following 3 areas were identified as the key enablers:
Value based procurement (behaviours) – removing cost as a main driver
Giving industry momentum, voice and backing
Robust metrics in a standardised framework
To move this forward there is a need to understand the ‘who’. Who are the key leaders? Who is empowered to change this? Who are the influencers? Who are the funders? Who are the blockers?
This will be the focus for the workshop on 21 June, to help understand who is working in this area, who we need to collaborate with and how we can engage key stakeholders.
"Standardisation is the key to manufacturing. It requires a new way of thinking in construction," says @HeathrowAirport's Phil Wilbraham #FTConstruction [Phil is also co-chair, w/ @MFarmer_Resi , of @constructingexc]
Uncomfortable reading for some no doubt. Both poor clienting & a more justified desire for ‘cheaper & better’ co-exist. But how many PM’s, QS’s, lawyers & fund/bank monitors are brave enough to advise clients to deliver differently to get better outcomes? https://t.co/cVv6FLe02F
