Pandemic shock – do we “snap back” or aim to “snap forward”?

The Engineering and Construction has been under pressure to deliver more, for less and faster. However, sector productivity has on average flat-lined over the past 20 years compared to the gains achieved in other sectors. What are the challenges and opportunities for boosting productivity and performance? What does the picture now look like with Covid-19 shock recovery? The panel will explore how the sector is being creative, innovative and adaptive – ready to contribute to outcomes not just to ‘snap back’, but to move forward in an at-speed project delivery environment.
