During the past century, we have created an approach to delivering capital projects that is built to fail. The more we implement elements of the current approach, the worse project outcomes become. Only through resolving this “gap” will we be able to solve the project performance challenge.

Todd R. Zabelle’s forthcoming book, Built to Fail, will address why construction projects cost so much, take too long and how to fix it. This book will be released in January 2024, published by Forbes | Books.
