March saw the launch of two significant outputs for Constructing Excellence: The Prospectus on Insurance Backed Alliancing and Organisational Resilience – Are we built on a house of cards? We will be examining these in detail at our members forum on 16 May.
We will look in detail at Organisational Resilience in the UK Construction Industry, authored by Project 5. A particularly significant given some of the current issues affecting the industry. The report’s purpose – to provide an overview of how resilient the industry is in relation to a range of internal and external factors – explores the role of organisational resilience in enabling construction companies to adapt to changing conditions. It addresses the evidence of failure, posits why they fail, considers the issues, areas of risk, and proposes how to build resilience and the benefits therein of doing so for the individual companies and the sector as a whole. We will take time to consider what Constructing Excellence and its members can do to address these issues and deliver a stronger, more resilient industry.
