We’re experiencing a boom of ideas, passion, and capital to advance the homebuilding industry, but leading change can be tricky. Consistent and targeted R&D commitments create the opportunity to unlock value for forward-thinking organizations. But what does it mean to embrace these concepts and how do we de-risk the journey?
