Our Mission: Provide stellar partnering facilitation services that engage best practices in communication, construction, leadership and project management.
Why Partnering? What is in it for you?
Organizational development is more that bring a team together, assigning tasks and relying on their professionalism to do the rest. Developing effective communication as well as understanding the individual communication and problem-solving methods is vastly more important in facilitating people, places and things to achieve goals and objectives.
We have conducted partnering workshops for construction projects, and non-construction work teams. The process focuses on communication, goal setting, issue/problem identification and problem resolution. However, we always customize our workshops to meet the needs of our clients. We use similar practices for developing diverse teams, facilitating common goals and objectives with a buy-in toward excellence.
Partnering in diversity is a practical means of establishing effective working relationships for project teams. As a result, conflicts are reduced; there are fewer complaints, less disruption and less chance of angry staff or costly litigation. Time savings and value added benefits create financial gains for both public agencies and contractors. The public benefits by obtaining services that are higher quality, less costly and garner better results.
Value Engineering: New technologies, such as Building Information and 3D Modeling, allow cost analysis in a fraction of the time now. Innovative ways to approach projects offer solutions for reduction of wasted time, manpower and materials. The partnering process creates opportunities to introduce alternatives that better the project.
