The construction industry is facing talent challenges far different than any that it has faced in the past. Where additional labor was once the cure all to productivity and bandwidth issues, labor (by form of sheer quantity) is no longer able to effectively solve the problems that face modern contractors.
As contractors are forced to change the way they plan and deliver projects, teams are being forced to adapt to new, lesser developed skill sets. All of this is occuring during a massive shift in both workforce demographics and culture. The construction industry is facing change and challenges from multiple fronts and they all link back to talent.
