The report highlighted the value of collaboration approaches including regular team meetings, formal brainstorms, and groups of stakeholders coming together to develop risk management plans together. The notion of such proactive collaboration practices has long been known throughout the construction industry, but with the rise of mega projects comprising huge numbers of subcontractors and partners, the stakes for mitigating risk have only gotten higher. Among the findings... Read More
