About This Book

What needs to change for your business to grow sustainably?

The engineering and construction industry is at a tipping point: How can we foster long-term growth in uncertain times? How do we navigate technology-driven disruption and meet the challenge of net zero emissions? And how do we create a more inclusive, collaborative, and sustainable industry for the future? The Steel Ceiling: Achieving Sustainable Growth in Engineering and Construction highlights current issues facing businesses in the engineering and construction sector in Australia—and outlines what it takes for your business to withstand the economic test of time.

This book gives you the strategic plan you need to break through the "steel ceiling" holding you back. In clear and actionable terms, with examples and stories from the industry, it outlines an effective methodology you can use to grow your enterprise sustainably—from a small business to megaproject capability.
