How to Stay Ahead of Your Competitors!

Maintaining the status quo in a changing construction economy is the "kiss of death".

To make sure your company is embracing change, maximizing sales and profits as well as staying ahead of your competitors you need:
  • Effective Strategic Planning Process
  • Effective Execution of a formal Strategic Plan
  • Enhanced Employee Engagement and Accountability
To determine if your company is prepared for a challenging future, just answer these basic "yes" or "no" questions:

Does the company have an effective annual strategic planning process?

Is there a formal one-page plan being executing throughout the entire employee organization that has everyone focused on what is required to succeed and are all employees held accountable?

Has the company identified ways to enhance the engagement of both management and staff in the process of strategic planning and execution of the plan?

If you answered "no" to two of these basic questions, then your company needs to make serious changes. If you answered "no" to three, then your company REALLY must change and you must initiate these changes as soon as possible.

How do you feel about your answers? What questions can I answer?
