The 7Cs of Innovation

It’s coming, we don’t know when, we don’t who, but the disruption of the civil engineering and construction sectors is coming.  As a conservative industry, designing and building assets that often have to be operational for over a 100 years there is resistance to change.  To meet this challenge the EMEA Civil Infrastructure division at AECOM appointed an Innovation Champion to lead and facilitate the business in delivering innovation through the teams.

Ian will be presenting on his experience of meeting the challenges in the civil engineering sector and how the 7Cs have provided the framework to deliver innovation success for the division of AECOM.
