Scaling Up is Not Just for Fish; What Savvy Owners do Differently to Deliver Projects at Scale

Zions Bancorporation's New Technology Campus - A case study highlighting lessons learned and best practices for delivering large-scale projects that are applicable to projects of any size.

Learning Objectives

1) Capitalize on the opportunity of disruption. Disruption isn't always a dirty word. It can be the catalyst to fast forward a company's natural evolution toward innovation.

2) Don't just team-build, build a team. Know when to engage outside expertise and resources to boost your team's capacity, create high-performing teams and deliver stellar outcomes.

3) Communication is the bridge between diverse stakeholders. Document and share decisions and high-impact information to ensure engagement throughout the organization.

4) Lessons learned and best practices earned. How these lessons learned have changed our team and going forward, what we are doing differently through best practices.
