As A/E/C firms compete for business and the technical staff to meet growing customer needs, these same firms search for ways to collaborate more, produce faster, and focus better on what matters most to clients.
Strategic Excellence in the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction Industries presents current best practices and ways that A/E/C organizations can apply them to produce the outcomes necessary to realize current and future business strategies.
Strategic Excellence in the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction Industries goes beyond the classic approach to strategic planning as it:
- Offers Shingo principles and Lean Six Sigma tools to execute A/E/C strategic planning and management processes
- Addresses organizational culture and employee engagement into planning and processes
- Suggests how to develop a culture of strategic thinking, problem solving, and continuous improvement
For leadership that seeks a high-performing culture and promote ideal behaviors, this book allows you to explore the insights and the thought leadership of the Shingo Model and the scientific thinking of Lean Six Sigma.
