Importance of speed of construction in high buildings

What are the areas of the work that take the longest time per floor that can be improved to speed up construction time?

Speed isnt always a good thing it can lead to flaws and lessened quality but it should go at a decent pace.

There are methods of work like precast that can speed up construction by using new materials in different ways that speed construction and improve quality. These are the ones I am most interested in.

Having watched various buildings in Liverpool, the main areas that take the longest are starting off and a service core with more than 1 stairwell. Floors can be done in about 3 days (day 1 to lay the wood and mould for the concrete, and into day 2, then mid/late day 2 lay the concrete and smooth it, then let it dry overnight and into day 3, on day 4 it is ok to stand on

What would be the benefit in saving the time for doing plastering or for taping drywall? If you could board and start painting the next day would that not save significant time of construction?
