Description: Executives from the commercial real estate world offer a manifesto for fixing their wasteful and broken industryThe commercial real estate industry is in a sad state. Most large projects experience big cost overruns and long delays. Corporations throw good money after bad, and much of that money is wasted. Big construction is the only major industry in the country to decline in productivity over the last 40 years. In The Commercial Real Estate Revolution, executives from different corners of the industry team up to offer solutions and a plan for making the industry work again. Arguing that change must come from business leaders and business owners, the authors show how clients and owners can save on construction costs and how suppliers and contractors can improve quality, reduce costs, and increase profits.Rex Miller (Southlake, TX) is a consultant and veteran sales and management executive in commercial real estate. Dean Strombom (Houston, TX) is a Principal at Gensler, the largest architectural firm in the world. Mark Iammarino (Chicago, IL) is Vice President and Director of Education for Turner Construction's Chicago office. Turner is the largest construction company in the United States.Bill Black (Holland, MI) is National Director of Strategic Business Solutions at Haworth, a leading manufacturer of commercial office interiors.
