Build Better Together: Coping with Industry Fragmentation

Speaker

Raymond E Levitt, PhD., Stanford University

About the Session

Construction has been notorious for vertical, horizontal and geographical fragmentation for the past century. What’s changing this today, and how will emerging technologies revolutionize the industry? Dr. Levitt’s keynote presentation will propose why so much fragmentation exists, describe examples of past attempts at supply chain re-integration and explore whether similar supply chain integration strategies are likely to succeed and proliferate today.

Speaker

Jose Luis Blanco, Partner, McKinsey & Company

About the Session

A mandate for change is not enough—what leadership factors, organizational structures, and processes are needed to grow and sustain success? This session will present new data on the rapidly evolving construction tech ecosystem, and explore how project leaders are taking bold action—from enacting changes within their organizations to pursuing new partnerships or M&As—to digitize for long-term success.

Executive Workshop: Establishing Your Technical Roadmap

Speaker

Jay Snyder, Technology Practice Leader, FMI

About the Session

Industry leader FMI has helped many construction companies establish and develop a tech strategy that bridges their business vision and goals.
