With all the stakeholders in a project, it is no wonder that collaboration is a pressing need for most contractors. These many interests can be divided into three major groups:
• Funders / Users
These three groups have one goal – on time and on budget construction with safety and quality excellence. These key collaborators don’t have conflicting goals just different ones.
Coordinating these efforts into one consistent push toward project completion with high satisfaction can’t be debated. It is the goal. The path to that destination is what excellent collaboration is about.
We teach collaboration in the Construction Contracting Industry. Our course includes:
1. Collaboration and its parts – The 3 P’s: Partners, Processes and Products
2. Natural conflicts in construction collaboration and how to overcome them
3. Reiteration – the necessary patience to succeed when collaborating
4. How to do you know you have succeeded
Don’t forget that all projects are built by more than one person. There is no choice other than to collaborate. Learn this skill and make contracting easier.
