Engineering and Construction

Meeting the leadership challenge in high stakes sectors

The Industry Challenge

Engineering and construction have the potential to add billions of dollars to economies around the world, as populations surge and changes in technology increase infrastructure demands. Realising this potential is easier said than done, with the effects of global economic downturn still affecting many organisations and a skills shortage restricting ability to take on projects. This is compounded as the industry is made up of different, overlapping sub-sectors, requiring multiple disciplines to work together to deliver projects on time, to brief and on budget

Companies in the engineering and construction sector are used to doing more with less following the financial crisis but now they have to take this knowledge and leverage it to create growth. This includes conserving and developing skills to ensure demand can be met and quality levels are upheld, as well as innovating to meet the demands of a green, energy efficient future.

To do this, organisations must have mechanisms in place that facilitate knowledge transfer, development and acquisition, in addition to cross-sector collaboration. Processes are required to encourage ideation and innovation in order to safeguard the future, while ensuring leadership is effective and capable of aligning stakeholders to a unifying and relevant purpose. Simultaneously, there must be a culture of compliance, to ensure health and safety, quality, and industry rules and regulations are met.
