M.A.P. = Marketing + Accounting + Production
Large Profitable Construction - Companies have known about and used some form of Business Process Development (BPM) for hundreds of years. For 100+ years colleges and universities have opened the treasure trove of secrets to their business majors and provided them with an in-depth understanding of how BPM works.

The Wise Students Paid Close Attention - And drank thirstily from the fountain of knowledge, read all the textbooks cover to cover, more than once, did their homework and understood BPM. Those folks are scooped up by large profitable construction firms quickly and hidden away inside the financial and project management offices of those same large profitable construction firms I referred to earlier. Good for them, bad for you because you are waging a war of growth and profit with a bow and arrow against better trained men and women with superior fire power, BPM!
Some Business Major Graduates - Have attempted to use their knowledge of BPM to help small construction companies and failed miserably because the business majors and the construction company owners do not understand each other's world. Unfortunately for the contractors they tend to be suspicious and distrustful of anyone who offers new concepts and ideas that do not directly involve getting work done on the jobsite.
Every Once In A While - A contractor with or without a formal college or university education, perhaps someone like you, will gain enough understanding of BPM and break free of the shackles of your protective conditioned mind and its fear creating mechanisms long enough to begin applying some of these concepts in your construction company.
In The Beginning It Will Be Very Uncomfortable - Since change is always uncomfortable; however, in a few short years your construction company will most likely become extremely successful and you will become very wealthy.
The Best Of The Best - Are those few contractors who work in construction, perhaps mastering one of the trades and then becomes a contractor and then learns and applies the principles of BPM.
Only A Few Cases - Will they will turn their attention to the art and science of Construction Bookkeeping And Accounting and share it with his fellow contractors.

BPM Has Many Names - Phrases and words to describe it and the simplest one is the one we at Business Consulting And Accounting came up with: "Use Your M.A.P. To Find The Treasure Hidden Inside Your Construction Business.
Marketing Is The Foundation - Because nothing happens until somebody buys something. All successful contractors know people are buying construction products and services by visiting Home Depot, Lowes, lumber yards, plumbing and electrical supply houses and seeing construction company trucks and vans on the highway. The only question they ask themselves is who are those people that are buying construction services and how can we be at the right place, at the right time, with the right message when they begin their search for a contractor.
Accounting Is The Scorecard - In your Construction business. It tells you what is working and you should do more of to make more money and what is not working which is what you should do less of to make more money.
Construction Accounting - Is the center of your construction business; pay attention to what it says and it can make you wealthy. The value in your bookkeeping is in the accuracy of the reports.
You Can Hire A - Cheap/Bad Bookkeeper and get garbage reports to base business decisions upon.

Production Is Where - The rubber meets the road or if you please this is where all the planning and support structure pays off.

The best finish carpentry tools in the hands of a golf professional without proper carpentry training will not produce anything near to what a skilled finish carpenter can.
