Show Notes

Mark Konchar learned how to collaborate, growing up playing hockey.  He is one of the PhD’s that Victor Sanvido turned out of Penn State that has so influenced our community.  He and Victor collaborated on an early Design Build Study sponsored by the Construction Industry Institute.  He’s a co-author of Change Your Space, Change Your Culture with Rex Miller and others.  Mark served as chair of the Board of the Lean Construction Institute and was Balfour Beatty’s Chief Innovation Officer for a decade.  Now a senior vice president in charge of BB’s rail unit, he’s helping develop that much needed aspect of infrastructure.  And he’s a hockey coach for his kid’s team and, btw, in the Penn State Hockey Hall of Fame.  Enjoy an hour with Mark Konchar.
