The construction business is challenging, and it is easy to allow 100% of the team’s time to become focused on getting work and building projects. That’s why picking the right direction for your company and having a solid plan to get there is the most important thing a contractor can do ensure profitable growth.
“We have a strategic plan. It’s called doing things.” – Herb Kelleher; Founder and Retired CEO of Southwest Airlines
With that said most Contractors all pursue very similar strategies so the differentiating factor is execution.
Optimum results are achieved if the team as a whole spends a portion of their time focused on building the business; not just building projects. A structured planning process with regular follow-ups can ensure that this happens.
