On Demand through June 6, 2018

Duration:60 minutes

Abstract:

Creativity is behind every breakthrough that changes the way structures are created, schedules are streamlined, and safety is improved. But although some people seem to have a knack for good ideas, companies that create and sustain supportive environments for creative thinking will fertilize the field. Such environments need to be well stocked with information about a company’s tools, resources and personnel, as well as clear pictures of each client’s objectives. Innovative construction management software systems can provide a foundation for such supportive networks and idea exchange.

ENR will convene a panel of design and construction company information systems managers to hear about how they are using such systems to help their firms make creativity bloom.


The content of this webinar is produced and directed by ENR's editorial team.
