 “It Takes People to Make the Dream a Reality”: How to Work Towards a High-Performing Team

Working in projects is working with people. Building a new dream team, recognizing and letting go of old habits, utilizing all personal qualities and discover new skills.

Even the more traditional industries realize they need to embrace digital transformation. For example in the construction industry, Building Information Modelling is used to design and build a complete office virtually before it is actually is built. And in the ship building industry, buyers of custom-built super yachts can walk through their new toy to see their dream become reality, and future captain can check on practicalities such as sighting angles and accessibility of all equipment. 

And although everything is possible in the virtual world, it still needs to be made. These projects need a straightforward, structured and stable process. With specialists and craftsmen who are able to work ‘first time right’ with minimal disturbances. This is also the meeting point where the digital world meets the physical world. Where people meet people. Where both management and leadership is needed.


In this interactive presentation, vivid examples and real-life stories will help you reconsider your own approach towards yourself and your team, with helpful suggestions for further improvement.
