The Team Risk When Relying on Your Project Team Too Much

View descriptionShare

Hello! This is Episode 307, and in it, I’m going to be talking about a common and problematic risk when it comes to finding and working with your project team, be it your architect, designer, town planner, builder or other professional.

This is a TEAM RISK that can actually derail projects, and cause a lot of stress and extra expense.

Team is one of my five factors that threads through every decision and step in your project journey. The other four are COST, TIME, DESIGN and YOU.

Renovating and building really is a team sport. And teamwork does make the dream work. 

But believe it or not, you can get into trouble if you rely on your team too heavily, and look to them to have all the answers. 

“But Amelia”, I hear you say … “Isn’t that the very reason I hire them? So that I can rely on them, and they can provide all the answers in my project?”

Well, perhaps. 

But you don’t want to do it without managing your risk first. And unfortunately, it’s because people don’t manage their risk upfront that their team can get them into so much trouble. We’ll talk more about that in this episode.
