From Egan to the 21st Century

The Egan Report Rethinking Construction was published in July 1998 and patterns regarding take-up of some recommendations are emerging. The report came four years after the Latham Report Constructing the Team - and while it is a follow-on in some areas, it conflicts significantly in others. Typically Latham gave considerable thought to improving contracts which would also reduce conflict. Egan suggests that contracts should often be replaced by regular team working, and therefore reliance on mutual trust and interdependence. Stefan Tietz
