However, our industry is embracing new technology, often in spite of the negative impact to our field efficiency, because these innovations can offer value in other ways. A great example of new technology is the proliferation of mobile apps for design collaboration between generals, subs and consultants.

"Much of the problem has been the disparate way people handle information."
