Keynote address titled
Collaborative Procurement: Escaping the Bermuda Triangle
The construction sector accounts for millions of jobs, billions of spend and huge carbon emissions, and yet the systemic, adversarial inefficiencies identified by the McKinsey Global Institute in 2017 are still the basis for business as usual. Calls for collaborative procurement often disappear into the 'Bermuda Triangle' of idealistic debate, cynical criticism and unrealised good intentions, and we urgently need to break through these barriers. This presentation will explore new collaborative procurement systems, based on the 2020 UK 'Construction Playbook', through which clients and industry are improving value and reducing risks.
