Many construction company owners and managers believe that if they manage their construction projects, the company will run itself. Nothing is further from the truth. Running the projects and managing the business require two completely different skill sets. Owners and managers must work in the business as well as on the business. To remain competitive and profitable, companies must examine and make every facet of their company as efficient as it can be. Participants will learn fundamentals of managing the business. Through discussion, exercises and examples, participants will be given tools to assist them with the business end of the business. 

This course will touch on challenges new company owners that have come from the field face. It explores those skills needed to run a project. Topics covered include the course of events from apprenticeship to business owner, surrounding yourself with brilliant people, your dashboard for success, and procedures you will need to implement.
