Product mindset

The Construction Playbook, Government Guidance on sourcing and contracting public works projects and programmes Version 1, produced by the Cabinet Office and published in December 2020, is focused on getting projects and programmes right from the start. Its principles and policies are intended to transform how public works projects and programmes are assessed, procured and managed. It is a ‘compact’ between government and industry, setting out how they will work together in future.

It suggests that the product mindset delivery model approach is: ‘Learning the lessons of repeatability from manufacturing, often with extensive use of digital design and Design for Manufacture and Assembly. Should lead to progressive improvement and efficiency. Viability depends on a visible pipeline of repeatable products.’ ie “ I need lots of these and need them to get better, greener and faster.”
