In this episode we discuss CII’s latest Conference in August 2017 and we review what Stephen spoke about, particularly the benefits of flattening the supply chain, Stretching the dollar and shrinking for agility.

We further discuss the interdisciplinary research that CII is doing about the current business model of construction. We dig deep into the current operating system on which the industry works and most importantly how it can be transformed with key elements of a new OS called Operating System 2.0 AKA OS2.0.
