Contractors Executive Briefing. Prepare for Profitable Growth in All Economic Conditions. External Trends + Actionable Tactics Tailored for Your Business and Team.

There are continual changes in the external market and every contactor is impacted by some of them to some degree. Our focus is on tailoring this briefing specifically to what will be most impactful with your team at your current stage of growth. External environment trends include:

  1. Economic outlook - both as a whole and localized to geographies and market sectors
  2. Talent shortages, retention, and development challenges at both the craft and management levels
  3. Technology integration into every aspect of construction from the earliest stages of design through construction, operations, and maintenance of projects
  4. Capital markets for financing of both projects and acquisitions leading to greater consolidation.
  5. Supply chain
  6. Off-site fabrication and modularization
  7. Increasing government regulation including labor, environment, safety, building codes, permitting, and taxes.


Compounding the myriad of external factors, every contractor navigates through various stages of growth. 

Headcount, Stages of Growth, and Growth Inflection Points for Construction Contractors - At approximately every tripling of headcount there are major changes that need to be made to the systems and structure of an organization. Additionally, strategies often need to be adjusted for continued sustainable growth. Leading change is difficult at best. Not changing is far worse.


We are best at helping contractors navigate critical inflection points in their growth. We exist to help contractors build stronger businesses for the next generation by leveraging talent, technology, and capital through alignment and transparency.

Every contractor is already aware of all the industry-wide changes, along with the myriad of “normal” challenges faced by every growing contractor. These changes are continuing to create amazing opportunities for those contractors that can capitalize on them; many others will be left behind. Today’s dominant contractors will not necessarily be dominant in tomorrow’s market.

These challenges have all been successfully navigated before. There is nothing truly new under the sun. Build upon the foundation of your experience with our lessons-learned, tools, tactics, problem-solving capabilities, and relationships to accelerate your growth. Collaboration creates exceptional contractors.
