The overriding theme of the 2016 CURT Owner Trends Study, conducted by Continuum Advisory Group is the need for organizational agility.
For owners, operational excellence in the execution of capital programs is no longer enough
to build or maintain a competitive advantage in the rapidly changing marketplace.
Owners require a capital construction organization that can be agile and rapidly adjust to
changing needs. For the contractors and engineering firms who serve these owners, agility
may be even more important; they must provide solutions to their customers that allow
them to effectively manage change. This study highlights the forces driving this need for
organizational agility and identifies the characteristics of agility that owners, as well as the
contractors that serve them, will need in the coming years.
