Two of Continuum Advisory Group’s Senior Consultants, Nate Scott and Kelcey Henderson, just returned from an 11 day trip to India. Outside of it being a wild, unique adventure for both, full of many cows and heart-pounding traffic experiences, there was excellent progress made with one of Continuum Advisory Group’s global, multi-billion dollar clients. The challenge for Nate and Kelcey? Introduce Continuum Advisory Group’s proprietary Integrated Team Performance (ITP) processing addition to various Lean tactics, to a multicultural Indian-based construction team responsible for the construction of a large manufacturing facility.
The demands upon internal Engineering, Construction and Facilities (E/C/F) groups are increasing. They are being asked to do more with less faster to accomplish strategic business objectives. Continuum Advisory Group found this and more to be true in a recent study called “Order Takers or Value Creators – Engineering, Construction, and Facilities Groups as Critical Drivers of Organizational Performance.“
The study was produced in partnership with the Construction Industry Institute (CII). Continuum Advisory Group’s Matt Marshall presented the study’s findings recently with the Associated General Contractors of Colorado Subcontractor Relations Committee.
In “Know Thy Owner – The Secret to a Successful Partnership,” Matt focused on the importance of the (sub)contractor community developing a keen understanding of owner’s business and strategic imperatives to help forge a meaningful long-partnership.
The discussion included specific table topics fostering robust discussions on how (sub)contractors can more effectively understand and meet the needs of their owner clients.
In today’s world, E/C/F groups are looking to their engineers, contractors and equipment providers to be strategic partners and understand how to engaged in delivering strategic business solutions — not just delivering a project on time and on budget,” Marshall said. “We explored what being a strategic partner means with owner clients.”
