The building industry is inherently complex, incorporating the business cycles of both residential and commercial construction. The upstream segment of the industry, which operates on a truly global level, has been reconfigured by successive waves of M&A, creating a small group of multinationals consolidating local enterprises. Further downstream, most players are competing at a national or even regional level, constrained by building codes, climate, and local natural resources. Industry dynamics are increasingly about driving efficiencies and bringing innovations to the market.

We can help you assess your organizational structure and talent management strategy, weighing it against current demands for more efficiency and greater market reach.
