There are many changes that have happened industry-wide, but the proliferation of mobile technology and the widespread availability of fast internet on jobsites are the foundation and enablers of the technology explosion.

In addition to internet access and mobile devices, computing power also doubles about every 2 years, according to Moore’s law. With that doubling comes the ability to process larger and more complex data sets. With the ability to consume more data, vendors can add more instrumentation and do not have to be as conservative with the amount of data their tools generate.

System development teams are there to aide in decision-making, acquisition, implementation, and integration of construction technology systems. With all of the new technology improvements surrounding data, they are also the team generally responsible for interpreting that data and turning it into an asset that the operations and finance teams can leverage.

The Contractor Scoreboard - A Contractor Must Do 3 Things
This outcome-based scoreboard keeps everyone focused on what matters. Avoid metric overload and diffusion of resources. All other metrics throughout all levels of the organization fall into a hierarchy below these with priorities changing over time.
Change Management Foundation
There are four foundational items that support great change management. Without these in place, you will never get the value out of streamlining the process.
Project Delivery - Design-Bid-Build
The Design-Bid-Build (DBB) method of project delivery is easily the most familiar to owners, architects, and contractors. No contractor should ever lose their ability to compete, win, and build profitable projects using this method of delivery.
