present an FMI Seminar:

Innovation: The World of Construction 2.0

The word "innovation" often invokes imagery of tablet computers, holograms and spaceships. Industry leaders such as Google, Facebook and Apple wrestle for superiority in game-changing innovations. Why should the construction industry - one of the largest sectors in the world - be the laggards in this conversation? Innovative concepts give way to organizational best practices daily through powerful individuals, project teams and business units. They are not high tech, flashy gadgets, but rather groundbreaking ideas that create efficiency, and ultimately make the industry better.

During this seminar, Gregg Schoppman of FMI Corporation will:

  • Observe how organizations stimulate innovative thinking at all levels in their organization;
  • Examine types of innovation, and what limits innovative thinking;
  • Explain the role of management and accountability in stimulating or stifling creative and innovative thought; and
  • Describe the key trends in innovative management theories, technologies and macro-level innovations.
As a principal with FMI Corporation, Mr. Schoppman is a consultant who specializes in the areas of productivity and project management. Prior to joining FMI, he served as a senior project manager for a general contracting firm in central Florida. He also has experience as a construction manager, managed direct labor, and has expertise in numerous contract delivery methods.

Mr. Schoppman holds a bachelor's and master's degree in civil engineering from the University of Florida and a master's degree in business administration with a concentration in international business from the University of Tampa. He also possesses a Florida General Contractors license.
