Goals That Stick: Rallying Project Teams around Building Performance

While project teams typically establish quantifiable performance targets for their projects, there is no magic bullet for defining the right energy consumption goal for each project. This panel of high-performance experts and architects will discuss strategies for quantitative goal setting: when, who, and how aggressive.

How do teams arrive at goals that stick? What makes teams rally around them? What are the risks of setting ambitious goals? How do teams know when they are being aggressive enough? Attendees will be prompted to think critically about their own goal-setting practices, and the panelists will share their lessons learned from leading exemplary high-performance projects from conception to completion.
