Ralph - thanks for the invitation; John - thanks for setting this up. I really like the wording of the code of conduct. It is good to know you both.

As you will see from my profile I bring some knowledge, understanding and skills in architecture, design, collaboration, systems thinking, organisation development, variation, quality and lean to my work as a socio-technical systems consultant.

I am currently working at the intersection of lean thinking and construction 4.0. I am concerned that too much is being automated before it is improved so that waste generation is speeded up (as well as what we want). This is not good for people or the planet.

I want to work out how to encourage more aec customers/clients/owners to procure their new construction in ways that promote collaboration throughout the construction supply chain. This will help them get their projects delivered at a lower cost, more safely, on-time and with more of the scope that they value, while the supply chain delivers with higher margins. I know this is possible. It is already happening.

I look forward to discussing this in this forum.

not sure why the hashtags need to be larger than the text ???
