We are a team of leading advocates and mentors of Collaborative Working for the global built environment and have over 40 years of industry experience. IBE Partnership has received awards, featured in major publications and created articles which we hope will drive the construction sector into a more Sustainable Future.
The Machine that Changed the World
The main book I would recommend to anyone who wants to make a difference in the built environment is 'The Machine that Changed the World' by James Womack, Daniel Jones, and Daniel Roos. Every page is a gold mine!! I bought a number of copies over the last 30 years and ended up lending them all to newcomers of collaborative working!!
My working life changed on the 16th November 1992 when I first met Sir John Egan. I had the honour of working with him on testing out 'Rethinking Construction' in BAA. The Egan Report in my opinion is "the only way to deliver projects in the built environment" and a must read for everyone in the industry.
