BUILDING MANAGEMENT TALENT TO DRIVE THE FUTURE GROWTH OF YOUR FIRM
About the Program
Who will run your construction company when you’re gone? What are you doing to prepare your emerging managers to become your successors to manage and lead your company into the future?
Just being a technically skilled builder is not good enough in today’s competitive construction market. Industry research shows that the construction industry has done a good job of developing the knowledge base and technical skills of employees, but a poor job of developing management skills. Although people need to have a solid foundation of technical knowledge, the most successful leaders of the future will have also developed strong management, leadership and business skills in order to grow their company’s profitability.
