an original podcast by
Conspectus - decision-makers, word masters, aggregators

There is tremendous power in a word that is perfectly placed at the best location, at the best time, during the design and construction process of a project. Deliberate words can manage success, build trust, and provide transparency that every member of the project team craves.
As decision managers of the team, Conspectus explores the notion of how transparency transforms three main components of every project: behavior, content, and outcomes, through the appropriate usage of words.
    • Behavior of every participant, is the foundation communication and collaboration, through deliberate words. It will transform the team, and build strong relationships.
    • Content, the documentation built on these relationships, containing deliberate words, is then transformed.
    • The outcome is a successful project, with a legacy of ultimate collaboration.
Join us as we chat with members of the architectural, engineering, construction, and owner communities to learn how deliberate word shape their contributions, their projects, and their world! Through these conversations, words aggregate decisions, and transforms perspectives on transparency in the decision-making process.
