Often, we run into teams on construction projects who view the planning process as a luxury that they can’t afford. After all, if they know how to do their work, they don’t need to spend time and money before the fact, right? They can just show up on the day that work begins and get the job done.
This week, we’re talking about why planning is so important on a construction project, and we’re doing it through an analogy that compares construction planning to Jason’s all-time favorite movie genre – The Heist Movie.
We talk about:
- The reasons we start work without planning
- The real value of the project at hand
- The need for an ‘unshakable’ leader (think Danny Ocean)
- The need for strong trust AND faith within the project team
- The need for clear, effective communication
- Definition of roles within the team
- Preparing for what might go wrong
- Why Jason isn’t the podcast editor around here…
Join us, and let’s talk about what good planning looks like on a project, and what can go wrong without it!
(Also, I promised a link to the new podcast forum, http://gerritsandgerrettes.arcadewayfinding.com/ – Feel free to visit, but depending on how quick you are, it might still be under construction! The site should go live soon!)
