qMost construction contractors start small with ambitious plans for growth - but half will fail before they are five years old. The most skilled project managers and craftsmen still need the knowledge and experience in running a business to succeed. This book offers the opportunity to stack the odds in your favour. It is based on the things I've learned, used, and refined as a commercial contractor while starting up and operating my own construction firm for 25 years. My book spreads these tools out on the table and the reasoning behind them, makes suggestions for their use, and offers a proven business philosophy--knowledge a contractor can set in place from day one to put his construction business on a level playing field with the best-run companies. What's written here is born of missteps as well as best steps, and both are instructive in building a business that is profitable, enjoyable, and enduring. I've put in one place as much as possible of what I learned the hard way so that you can profit from my experience.q * Learn what you need to succeed in the construction sector * How to target, land and retain profitable customers * Avoid the pitfalls of running your own construction businessThe most skilled project managers and craftsmen still need the knowledge and experience in running a business to succeed.
