Planners and engineers often see the world through very different lenses. While planners typically look for the “when” and “who”, engineers seek the “how” and “what”, which can lead to conflicts. In the end, both planners and engineers are working for the same objective – to provide quality, effective projects.
This session will discuss the challenges that planners and engineers face when communicating with each other, and offer practical solutions for improving inter-discipline communication. It will include:
• What each side sees as frustrations and unsuccessful practices that the other discipline uses
• How projects can benefit from planners and engineers working together
