As a leading industry voice, PSMJ Founder and CEO Frank A. Stasiowski examines the state of our industry today and reveals the disrupters that will radically alter it by 2030. Just as a far-off earthquake can cause a Tsunami, forces and trends building now will shake the traditional design industry. In his best-selling book, IMPACT 2030, Frank outlines how demographics, globalization, government expansion, and technology advances can benefit firms that plan ahead — and be devastating for those that don’t prepare.
Predicting how client demands, design techniques, environmental conditions and financial forces will change over the next decade in a fluid and dynamic A/E/C industry is a challenging exercise. Yet, studying and applying educated predictions about the years ahead for the design and construction industry may be the only way to prepare for and positively control your firm’s future.
As clients demand that work be delivered faster, and the workforce gets younger, and we increasingly rely on emerging technology to balance cost pressures, nowhere are specific changes discussed in terms of how they affect long-term strategic decisions for A/E/C principals.
Frank made bold yet accurate predictions about A/E/C practice management and strategic shifts in the ‘80s, ‘90s, and ‘00s. Nearly all have come true. Those who integrated his prognostications have reaped the rewards.
This session is just one of the many reasons why you should attend METALCON 2019 next week. This session will take place in the PPG Theatre (located on the show flow) on Wednesday, October 16, 2019 from 3:00 PM – 3:30 PM. Who wouldn’t want to be able to predict the future?
