2011 has been another tough year for the Engineering & Construction industry and the challenges ahead for the industry and its clients remain daunting. Project challenges continue to grow, competitive pressures mount and government budgets remain constrained. The Engineering & Construction industry is responding, innovating better solutions, generally incremental in nature. As a new year approaches, it is a good time to reflect on how we can do better by causing breakthrough or systemic innovation to occur.
This short Viewpoint piece has just appeared in Engineering News Record and is intended to cause the key players in the E&C industry to think about whether our own industry\'s model is a barrier to systemic innovation. Over the years you have all been most generous in your feedback, thoughts and challenges to the many articles I have written. In many ways this may be the most important. I value your input and encourage you to share your thoughts and suggestions with me.
