We’ve all seen a flock of geese flying in V formation, but have you ever stopped to wonder why they do it? Well the simple answer is teamwork.
By supporting each other and creating uplift they are an amazing 70% more efficient.
When one of the team is struggling you’ll see a stronger team member break away in support to lead the struggler back into the formation. Clearly there are lessons for us to learn.
Applying this model to your fit-out project will undoubtedly generate similar efficiencies. A strong fit-out company should put forward a project team that has a proven history of working together, managed by a strong team leader. The inter relationships between the sales, pre-contracts, design and construction teams are fundamental to the smooth delivery of your project.
Make sure that you meet the key team members at the pre-appointment stage and satisfy yourself that they operate as a unified team.
It’s imperative that you are working with a cohesive team that adds value to your own project team. Fundamentally it’s vital that everyone gets on with each other. After all you’re likely to be working together for several months.
You should also confirm that the people you meet during the sales process are the team that will see your project through to its conclusion, and not merely front men who talk a good story.
If you don’t like the people you meet, then best advice is to ask to meet other people from the same company, or to look elsewhere.
Whilst the fit-out company itself it is important, a truly supportive and motivated team is essential.
