Building an Entrepreneurial Culture at A/E/C firms 

Speaker: Scott Butcher, JDB Engineering

Description: As technology continues to disrupt the A/E/C industry (robotic bricklayers and drywall installers, automated electrical and plumbing engineering design), firms are growing increasingly wary about the future of their core services. This is particularly true when viewed through the lens of commoditization, a challenge firms have been dealing with for many years. By studying what companies are doing outside of the industry, some A/E/C firms have been able to diversify by incorporating new, ancillary services that go beyond the traditional offerings. This approach is bringing a new start-up mentality and entrepreneurial culture to those firms evolving beyond their traditional mindsets. What are they doing? How are they diversifying? What opportunities are out there? This interactive program will look at ways some industry firms have expanded beyond core services to meet the changing needs of their clients via several short case studies as well as a dynamic sharing of knowledge and ideas among attendees.
