Insight to Action: The future of the AEC Industry

Wednesday 31 October, 12 noon - 1pm

Deltek research indicates that business leaders lack the foresight needed to prepare for what’s ahead. We surveyed 700 decision makers across the professional services industry and uncovered the key trends and challenges that are impacting the industry.

Key findings include:
  • 76% of CEOs say their reports for important decisions come too late
  • 91% of CEOs do not think their business is prepared for regulatory risk
  • 59% of CEOs say maintaining an innovation portfolio will be a top business development priority in five years
  • 63% of respondents highlighted increasing project complexity as the top challenge expected in the next five years
  • 75% of respondents thought their business was unprepared to manage the risk of talent shortages

Topics covered will include:
  • Balancing the past, present and future: Having the right foresight has never been more important, yet so many decision makers feel they are in the dark. Why is this and why are businesses not preparing themselves for the risks?
  • Regulatory risk: In an increasingly complex regulatory environment, compliance and cyber security become harder to achieve. How should businesses be preparing themselves for this?
  • Emerging technologies: What are the opportunities and threats of new innovations
  • Taming project complexity: Tips on maintaining margins in spite of increasing demands to deliver faster and at lower cost
  • People planning in a time of shortage (resourcing and talent management): The importance of embracing technology and cultural changes to attract younger, ambitious talent
