Celebrated Speakers Advance Change in Capital Project Processes
Austin, TX, National and international speakers headline the 3rd Annual LinCP Forum with the theme of Facilitating Change, in Austin, Texas, on April 5-6, 2011 at Vintage Villas in Lakeway.
Three keynote presenters from the Mindshift Consortium core team, and co-authors of The Commercial Real Estate Revolution will enhance the third LinCP Forum’s focus on how capital project leaders can improve the planning, design, delivery, construction and operations of capital projects through better integration and collaboration.
Bill Black, National Director-Strategic Business Solutions, Haworth, kicks-off the Forum on April 5, with his talk, “Facilitating Change in an Industry that Hates Change.” The second day of the Forum on April 6 will begin with an inspiring talk by co-presenters Rex Miller (consultant) and Dean Strombom (Principal, Gensler).
As the Capital Projects industry is increasingly challenged with rapid changes in technology and financing capabilities, the presentations, panel discussions, and collaborative information sharing during the Forum will explore challenges and possible solutions to these pressing issues.
Discussions with capital project owners, architects, engineers, planners, contractors, program managers, and other key players in the capital projects industry will address four main topics:
+ Innovation and Creativity,
+ Financing Facility Projects,
+ Integrated Practice and IPD, and
+ BIM for Owners.
The use of collaborative technologies and processes, such as an audience response system, table facilitators, and World Cafe will be utilized to enhance participants’ experiences. Attendees will also receive an Outcomes packet after the event to include key ideas and concepts from the Forum.
An optional gourmet dinner will be held following the close of the Forum on Wednesday, April 6, at Hudson’s on the Bend Restaurant. The all-inclusive multi-course meal will include appetizers, choice of entrée and wine.
Attendance to the LinCP Forum event is limited to 100 people, which maintains the intimate environment of the LinCP Forums. AIA Learning Units are offered, and sponsorships are still available.
The venue, Vintage Villas, is located at 4209 Eck Lane, Austin, TX 78734, just west of Hwy. 620.
The Institute for Leadership in Capital Projects (I-LinCP), pronounced “i-link-up,” is a nonprofit organization devoted to supporting excellence in capital project planning, delivery, management, and performance.
