Welcome to this special supplement about the work of the Movement for Innovation and its development and progress over the past 12 months.
Since the Movement was founded in November 1998, a great deal has happened. Through focus and hard work, M4I has matured and is a new, dynamic, living and breathing driver for change. Both organisations and individuals involved with the Movement and the construction industry at large are sharing knowledge and experience of new and better working methods, thanks to this initiative and other like-minded bodies. Throughout the industry the understanding and awareness of Rethinking construction and M4I is constantly rising. It seems the 'infection', as a metaphor of the need to change practice by learning from the experience of others within the industry, is spreading. That is very encouraging.
Despite the hard work, it is with great enthusiasm that everyone within M4I continues to contribute to this. We are all enjoying what we do - and it would be great if more of you would get involved and show your commitment to the Egan principles.
Remember, the Movement is an enabler and it is ultimately up to the industry to ensure change and exploit the help and support available via M4I.
This supplement showcases some of the experience and knowledge gained within a range of M4I demonstration projects. These form the core of the Movement, and are a source for testing and developing innovations and 'best practice'. They highlight the benefits of getting involved to all parts of the construction industry, from the client to the component manufacturer. Without the whole supply chain involved, change simply won't happen!
We have come far in the past year - but this is just the beginning. If you are encouraged by what you read in this supplement, please contact us. We look forward to hearing from you.
