ICE London’s graduates this month warned that a risk averse culture is holding the industry back from delivering “more for less”.
Innovative practices and technology should be embraced, according to a panel of young debaters at the ICE, who also highlighted the importance of creativity and clients working with the suppliers at a pre-tender stage to draw a clear robust scope.
ICE London chair Anusha Shah said: “In the weeks leading up to the Comprehensive Spending Review, this debate has highlighted two important priorities for an industry under ever more pressure to deliver more for less - be less risk averse and be an intelligent, well informed client.”
“Industry needs to grasp this issue and make a start. Today’s graduates are tomorrow’s leaders and they recognise that they live in a world where the expectation will always be more for less.”
