The “Three-Legged Stool”

Our industry is based on a three-legged stool of cost, schedule, and scope (and/or quality).  At the conclusion of the 2018 LinCP Forum in San Antonio, we had a lively discussion about the three-legged stool, with owner representatives pushing back on the old adage that you can only achieve two of the three legs in any project.  We know that the client is not going to be completely happy with just two of these legs, but project teams are often forced into sacrificing one leg to fully achieve the others.  Why is this so? Is it unreasonable to expect it all? 

At this year's LinCP Forum we will examine the realities and assumptions behind this industry adage, the three-legged stool, while identify the bars that help support these legs and, possibly, rebuilding the  “stool”!



THE RIGHT CONTRACT MANAGEMENT :

How do contracts and management teams help support a balanced three-legged stool?

Just because a contract says something doesn’t necessarily make it so! We will explore the value of fair and balanced contracts, and traditional problems with architecture, engineering and construction contracts. The effective application of management teams to enforce the contract fairly and lead a project to success requires vision, reason, practicality, communication and collaboration. Projects need to be managed. Leadership is required. What constitutes an effective and efficient project management team, who is involved and what motivates the team towards success?

We will examine what project management has to do with the overall success of a project and the intersection of contracts, management and leadership.

THE RIGHT CULTURE:

What part does culture play in stabilizing our three-legged stool? 

We will discuss what culture means to all the players involved in a project:  the owner, designers, general contractor and subcontractors. Culture is the accumulation of individual and corporate values and behaviors. 

Merck CEO Richard Clark, has stated that, “The fact is, culture eats strategy for lunch... You can have a good strategy in place, but if you don’t have the culture and the enabling systems that allow you to successfully implement that strategy, the culture of the organization will defeat the strategy.” For capital projects, one imperative for project success is how all the various stakeholders’ cultures and interests can blend into a cohesive, productive team. 

We will explore strategies that will strengthen culture to achieve project goals.

THE RIGHT SUBCONTRACTORS:

What role do subcontractors hold to ensure a successful project?

In this session we will examine how to maximize the roles and strengths of subcontractors to better define and execute the project within the cost, schedule, and quality desired.



KEYNOTE PRESENTERS

MORNING KEYNOTE PRESENTER AND PANEL (April 11):

                        

The Three-Legged Stool - Balanced or Broken?

Through a joint presentation with an owner, contractor, and designer this session provides the opening context to our Forum theme by getting their perspectives on the “ideal stool.”  The old adage is that you cannot get all three:  schedule, cost, scope/quality.  What are the feel-goods as well as the pain points?  What works and what may be missing? Is it still relevant, or is it outdated?
