The preparation and briefing stage for a new built environment project can be complex, from identifying processes for decision making to considering quality and sustainability requirements, and managing multiple stakeholders.
We understand the challenges you face, including:
- Inadequate involvement of all the relevant parties
- Insufficient time allocated to project definition
- Not enough consideration of the owner perspectives by the project team
- Poor communication among the parties
- Unsatisfactory management of changes in project requirements
These management issues often result in the misrepresentation of collective project needs and values, group indecision, and lost opportunities to innovate and create value for your facility owners and project stakeholders.
Communication is key
For effective project planning, dialogue is the critical medium through which stakeholders express needs, desires, wants and intentions, and also reveal differences and conflicts of interest. Good communication and an adaptive approach can lead to shared understanding and purpose, more innovative thinking and solutions to satisfy each party.
