Hosted by Utah Chapter: Developing an Integrated Mindset

Developing an Integrated Mindset

Doing design-build done right takes more than just winning a design-build competition or signing a design-build contract. It takes a whole new mindset. In this session we will discuss:
  • What this new mindset looks like and the challenges associated with shifting from a segregated services mentality, to an integrated services mentality.
  • The skills and talents necessary to be successful on an integrated team.
  • Tips about how to lead, incentivize, and leverage such teams to get optimized results for the project and your clients.
