Be Determined to Succeed with Distributed Teams

When the ultimate goal is one of making better decisions sooner on every project, continuous teamwork is key, says Beran. In this presentation he will share lessons learned about maintaining the cohesion of the team during the 2020 pandemic economic shutdown, and keeping the forces of team collaboration flowing when colleagues were remote and distanced. Beran will share obstacles his preconstruction team faced, and how they realized that they needed to focus intently on devising ways to overcome challenges, such as gaining actionable feedback from the field and timely input from operations, to guarantee the process would continue to succeed.
