Across the world in countries where the housing crisis is at its most desperate, you’ll find abandoned homes lying empty, just miles from families who need somewhere to live.

The explanation is all too simple: we waste our time and our resources when we build first and ask questions later. To become more effective in our work, we have to learn to work smarter.
