Over the last few weeks the Rugby World Cup has been going on across the country. Millions of supporters, myself included, felt the desperate disappointment following England’s early departure from the competition. As with all team sports, rugby needs the whole to equate to more than the individuals. The activities on the field and their analysis got me thinking about parallels we can draw with everyday business, in our case construction.
Part of the attraction of our work is that the challenges we face continually change throughout each construction phase. Our project teams make countless decisions every day identifying the best outcome in a given scenario while considering time, cost, risk, opportunity, safety – among others.
