Together, we’ll digest the root causes of innovation burnout, before debating the role of culture and leadership to break through it. Ultimately, we must decide which innovation battles that are worth fighting for, and which ones need a little more time to incubate. Before investing the resources necessary to deliver innovation, ensure the cultural health of the organization is ready.

We’ll digest how measurement impacts our incentive to innovate, before debating the return on investment of learning from failures. What changes in measurement are required to drive innovation in construction? How can AEC professionals, project owner/operators, and technology solutions provide a new level of transparency and accountability to thrive in the digital age? What metrics will drive the right behavior changes and deliver measurable improvements to the bottom line?

What is the balance between talk and action to drive innovation in the AEC Industry? If innovation requires a new level of ‘coopetition’, what is the separation between transparency and intellectual property? What can AEC professionals learn from other industries about the ‘art and science’ of innovation? How must leadership adjust adjust their mindset and strategy to harness technology’s full potential?

In this episode, we’ll digest the value of connected data across the design, construction, and operation phases, before we debate the challenge of delivering the right information to the right person at the right time. Together, we’ll understand the role of standards and contract incentives to protect our Common Data Environment (CDE) from design collaboration phase to facility operations and maintenance.

This episode brings together a diverse group of industry and technology professionals to discuss strategies and solutions to our collective Shared Pains with data transparency and interoperability. Find out how the Construction Progress Coalition is connecting these different perspectives together around a Common Data Exchange (CDX) approach to measuring and reducing the waste an inequality that has plagued construction for generations.

We digest the root causes of unreliable as-builts; in order to debate which project stakeholders have the most incentive - and influence - to replace analog documentation standards with digital performance requirements. Hearing from these different perspectives, remember….the role is yours to decide which of these innovations applies to your situation, and where to begin.

Despite all of the technology available to Architecture, Engineering, & Construction (AEC) Professionals, very little of it has proven to make a dent in Construction’s ‘Productivity Imperative’ coined by McKinsey & Co. in their 2015 market report. Our special guests are Benny Baltrotsky, Co-Founder of the Construction Open Standards Alliance (COSA) and Chief Strategy Officer for eSUB Software; and Nathan Wood, Founding Member of the Construction PDF Coalition and now Executive Director of the newly renamed Construction Progress Coalition after merging with COSA.
“Why does construction invest less than any other industry on new technology and innovation?”
“How has this impacted our ability to improve productivity and reliability compared to manufacturing and other industries?”
“How can we begin to reverse these negative trends?”
If you’ve asked yourself any of these questions in your career as an Architect, Engineer, Contractor, Fabricator, Material Supplier, Technology Provider, Owner, or Operator….this podcast is for you. Each episode focus hones in on a specific interoperability shared pain, and bring together the impacted perspectives from industry and technology to discuss the root causes of failed initiatives and capture the lessons learned that helped them overcome the challenge.
In this pre-episode, you’ll meet Sasha, Nathan, and Dan to better understand their unique perspectives on the AEC industry and the experiences that drive their passionate opinions on how to solve construction’s interoperability dilemma.
