Touchplan recently held a webinar that discussed how collaborative planning is essential before breaking ground on a construction project.

Moderator and Senior Customer Success Manager Carly Griffin was joined by Adam Nelson – Director, Planning & Scheduling at CRB, and Tom Nye – Principal Consultant at Jacobs.

The three covered a variety of topics that centered around using planning software during pre-construction to enhance collaboration, keep track of moving parts, and stay organized around crucial decisions and design challenges.

Some of the key takeaways from the discussion include:

  • Collaboration is the number one key to succeeding in these projects. It should not be a command and control industry anymore; teams must always have transparency, honesty, and respect. When everyone feels a part of the process and can work through problems together, they understand the expectations for the team and the project and can do their job efficiently.
  • A digital platform is not meant to waste their time; it is a resource, and in implementing it, leaders should meet the teams where they’re at to understand its importance and use case. You are not creating more work; you are creating more efficient work to help them in their daily lives.
  • With a digital platform like Touchplan, you can work with anyone, anywhere, at any time. Challenges may arise. However, using a digitized system forces accountability to be part of the conversation. This is a key component in planning meetings to foster transparency and understanding of who will get what done and when.
