Every company brings a different set of values, priorities, resources and competencies to a partnership. The challenge is to link these diverse contributions together with a common vision so the desired outcomes of the partnership can be realized.
The respected industry leaders at this event will share their insights into a selection of topics that are immediately relevant to Engineering and Construction companies in the current, increasingly challenging construction environment.
Lee Smither, a principal at FMI, will talk about the benefits of partnership on Human Resource Development, a critical topic considering the obvious talent scarcity in the industry. NYS Assemblymember Rodneyse Bichotte will provide guidance for creating equitable and mutually beneficial MWBE partnerships, and Dodge Analytics’ Steve Jones will share findings from multiple Dodge studies about construction project performance, risk management and other key trends that successful companies are leveraging to stay competitive in this dynamic market.
We’re looking forward to seeing you on April 19th.
Principal, FMI Consulting
Assembly Member NYS 42nd District
Senior Director, Dodge Analytic
As the principal of FMI’s people development practice, Lee will discuss the tangible benefits of partnership on human resource development within cooperating firms.
A tangible, and often unforeseen benefit of partnership is the resulting enhancement of professional skills and competencies in respective work forces.
Lee will also discuss people development as a solution to the talent shortage in the construction industry.
As Chair of the oversight of Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprises (MWBEs) subcommittee, Assemblymember Bichotte will talk about the benefits of creating equitable and mutually beneficial WMBE partnerships.
She will discuss how partnerships should benefit each organization by adding tangible value to their overall organizational goals, and how important it is for partners to contribute to the goals of their partner organizations.
Rodneyse will also discuss new legislation designed to help improve procurement practices in the industry.
The global construction industry is rapidly transforming and Dodge Data & Analytics is the world leader in tracking these trends, conducting cutting edge research and publishing compelling findings in its SmartMarket Report series.
