Right on & succinct. You Can Have Super Dedicated and Engaged Employees Just by Doing These 7 Simple Things 22 May


If you want to change the broken record of conflict, waste, cost overruns, change orders and and surprises on your next project then this book is for you. Almost every project includes unnecessary hidden taxes in the form of delays, cost overruns, poor quality, and work that has to be redone. Building is a fragmented, adversarial process that commonly results in dissatisfied customers and frequently ends in disappointment, bitterness, and even litigation. This book is the collective work of more than twenty-five industry leaders fed up with these conditions. Here are some statistics that inspired their research:

  • 70% of projects finish late and over budget
  • Up to 50% of a project is waste and non value added activity
  • Over 50% of office space is wasted or underutilized
  • Buildings account for up to 48% of greenhouse gasses
  • Construction accounts for the highest number of fatal injuries of any industry sector

The research uncovered projects that flipped conventional rules and by doing so achieved superior results. The book is written in an engaging investigative journalistic style that relates to corporate leaders with little experience in construction as well as long time veterans. It provides a behind the scenes look at several transformation stories that will inspire and convince you that there is a better way. The Commercial Real Estate Revolution also won the 2009 CoreNet Global Innovator of the Year Award.

This book has become the primer for hundreds of projects across the globe. Companies undertaking large and complex projects like Google, Intel, Disney, Parkland Hospital and others have expressed their appreciation for the book as a pivotal tool in shifting their culture and supply chain to a more trust-based and collaborative approach.

Imagine buildings that come in under budget, early and with few or no change orders. It’s happening today and the book explains how.

Rex Miller’s case is a powerhouse, busting through old myths and paradigms to face the flat new world of true collaboration and trust. Rex makes industry transformation for commercial real estate and construction more than possible—he provides a road map to lowering costs, removing waste, and producing the kind of sustainable buildings that will leave a positive legacy to the next generation.

— Stephen M. R. Covey, author of the New York Times bestseller The Speed of Trust
