Building and Supporting Resilient Project Teams — Fast

The challenge of swiftly aligning and engaging project teams is familiar in construction, but it is especially challenging on large projects involving hundreds of people from dozens of disciplines and roles. Richert’s insights are based on research and experiences examining the roots of success on such projects, and particularly the building of resilient team cultures, which help people pull together with shared trust, resolution, goals and ambition. But further complicating the creation and supporting of resilient teams, says Stantec’s Senior Business Solutions Analyst, are the accelerating changes in client requirements, company practices and technologies. Stantec has found its path to success runs through the hiring of people with proficiencies that are not typical of those the industry has relied on in the past. Those “atypical hires” are letting Stantec dedicate resources to addressing the expanding variability in the industry and improve best practices for project delivery in an ever-changing AEC world.
