Education, Brain Food On-Demand, News,

On a $10M+ design and construction project in rural Wyoming, the project delivery team experienced a very unique event.  While all multi-year projects deal with staff turnover at some point, this project suffered a loss of more than 60% of its original team leaders … most of which occurred between the end of design and the start of construction.  This session will explore the specific team-building and project culture-setting strategies employed throughout the project, helping carry it to successful completion despite the leadership changes
