Description: Here’s something odd: We’re getting worse at construction. Think of the technology we have today that we didn’t in the 1970s. The new generations of power tools and computer modeling and teleconferencing and advanced machinery and prefab materials and global shipping. You’d think we could build much more, much faster, for less money, than in the past. But we can’t. Or, at least, we don’t.

Questions for discussion:

  • Summarize the reasons offered that explain the lack of productivity growth in construction.
  • Do you think this is a fair assessment of the industry?
  • What are other possible explanations, as you see things?
  • What would recommend to the players involved that would allow for greater productivity?
