Global Construction Industry Stifle Fueled by a $1.6T Productivity Gap
Construction is the one of the world economy's largest sectors but has struggled to develop methods of improved productivity. While other sectors have embraced efficiencies through digital technologies, lean principles and general process innovations, construction continues to fall behind. According to studies from McKinsey Global Institute (MGI), "abundant gains are at stake. MGI's research found that if construction productivity were to catch up with that of the total economy - and it can - the sector's value added would increase by an estimated $1.6 trillion, adding about 2% to the global economy." Coupled with an increasing labor shortage, companies will be required to do more with less. In this webinar we take a look at the current state of the global construction industry and identify approaches toward better productivity through new product adoption.
