System Change - Necessary and Dangerous




The broken culture that underpins the procurement of built assets encourages the use of waste based business models. That broken culture is fragmented, adversarial and mistrustful and we must replace it with a smart built culture that is integrated, collaborative and trustful. In other words we must replace the existing system with a new and improved system. Replacing the system will be difficult, as the quote Machiavelli quote below reminds.

“It must be always be remembered; there is nothing more difficult to plan, more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to manage than a new system. For the initiator has the enmity of all who would profit by the preservation of the old institution and merely lukewarm defenders in those who gain by the new ones. ”
