The design and construction industry is one of the most inefficient on the planet, wasting billions of dollars a year of public and private owners’ money. Architects, engineers, builders, and developers have struggled in this environment for years. Barbara White Bryson and Canan Yetmen examine this issue and offer solutions in their new book, "The Owner's Dilemma: Driving Success and Innovation in the Design and Construction Industry."

Architects are commoditized, and contractors struggle with the same risk they have carried for centuries; critical design information is withheld until the submittal process; no practical risk management instrument has been developed; and buildings are still created one brick at a time.

Owners have played their part in this inefficiency. Some continue to believe in the value myth of competitive bidding, sentencing themselves to be eternally locked in inefficient processes.

But it is owners who can impact the industry most deliberately and aggressively. It is owners who can drive innovation on their projects and create profound change in the industry. In fact, it is owners who are uniquely positioned to innovate. By planning the design and delivery process, becoming team leaders, collaborating deeply throughout the industry, and applying key elements documented in "The Owner’s Dilemma," owners can summon meaningful and lasting change.

"The Owner’s Dilemma" explores how best to use the power of the owner and how that power can recreate the building industry.

PRAISE FOR 'THE OWNER'S DILEMMA"
“Every manager of facility acquisition as well as the architects, engineers, construction managers, and builders who work for these new leaders should read this insightful book.” -Charles Thomsen

“'The Owner’s Dilemma' should be required reading for anyone involved in the A/E/C industry — owners, architects, and construction managers alike. It offers a clear diagnosis about what’s wrong with the industry and a compelling vision about how to move forward.” -Scott Simpson

“'The Owner’s Dilemma' asks us to understand that two things are crucial. First, that each of its five elements is considered individually and given equal weight and second, that the five elements are considered collectively and this collective thinking must be maintained throughout the entire project. If the individual keys are managed well, the collective group will clearly be successful.” -Michael Graves
