At last we're ready to adapt ourselves

Congratulations on your Egan discussion (aj 11.2.99)! It feels as though the profession is beginning to realise that this is more of an opportunity than a threat. The report 'Rethinking Construction' and the activities of the Movement for Innovation, which is charged with implementation, are accessible to you on the web site www.m4i.org.uk.

Stefanie Fischer rightly highlighted the need for mutual respect of all the participants. We have made a lot of enemies in the industry so I would suggest that the first step is for us to stop speaking in code. Not dumbing down, just different - try listening to your clients, and explaining it from their point of view.

Although aj readers may know that the M4I process of change is based on 'Demonstration Projects' that incorporate some of the report's principles and the sharing of the lessons of the resulting knowledge, they may not know that there is a continuing need for well-designed small demonstration projects, new or refurbishment, that have not yet been completed. The application form can be downloaded from the website. Might there be an aj M4I Small Projects File?
