Owners in Transition: Doing More With Less

Posted on 10/01/2016 in Owner Trends - 0

September 13th and 14th Matt Marshall, Senior Consultant with Continuum Advisory Group, participated in the Construction Users Roundtable (CURT) Member Meeting and Forum entitled “Owners In Transition: Doing More With Less.” At the member meeting on the 13th Matt Marshall presented relevant findings from the 2016 Construction Users Roundtable (CURT) Owner Trends Study that Continuum helped conduct entitled  “Insights to Leading An Agile Capital Program.” Interesting topics from the forum on the 14th included:

  • how owners are “doing more with less” responding to reductions in force internal to their capital projects teams
  • how owners are overcoming challenges to project execution and productivity during times of transition
  • exploring modularization – lessons learned: when modularization is or isn’t appropriate, and
  • are the young professionals in our industry being adequately prepared for the future?

Reflecting on the meeting and forum Matt said, “CURT and it’s members and industry partners are working together to understand today’s most pressing issues, develop and share best practices and implement meaningful improvements and change in the industry. It’s a honor to partner with some of the most passionate and experienced people I have met in the business of planning and executing capital projects.”
