How To Leverage The Business Cycle To Your Advantage
The Business Cycle - Operates like the ocean waves and is somewhat predictable if you know what to look for and plan accordingly.
When You Have - A clearly defined and documented Business Strategy you will know what steps to take and when to take them. When you know the answers the questions will not bother you! Just like when you took a test in school in your favorite subject; it was fast and easy!
When The Economy Is Expanding - Demand for construction rapidly and almost overnight outstrips supply because so many contractors gave up and left the industry.
Well Intentioned Yet Unseasoned Contractors - Seize the opportunity to grow their businesses rapidly by haphazardly bidding and winning projects without giving any thought to calculating their company Expansion Path Isoquants, infrastructure, logistical support, working capital requirements, Job Costs or Key Performance Indicators (KPI).
The Inevitable Chaos - Caused by too much work and not enough labor, material, other costs and subcontractors (LMOS) leads to the contractor becoming a pipe through which money flows with increasing velocity and not in a fun way.
This Is The Leading Cause For Large Contractors Going Bankrupt - The construction company starts small; the owner is a visionary who understands the "Tangible" side of the business. They know how to bid, sell, produce and manage the company as it grows to roughly $5,000,000 in annual sales without having a clearly defined Business Process Management System or Strategy.
When They Take Their Business - To the next level not having a strategy or as I refer to it the "Intangible" side of the management equation, they often end up going bankrupt, several times in most cases, before hiring us or someone else to help them put together a strategy that includes the "3 P's": Processes, Procedures and Policies. I have said it over and over: "The same law that binds the ignorant frees the wise" - Randal DeHart.
Proactive Construction Companies- Who invested time and money getting their Business Process Management systems in place use The 80 20 Rule to grab a nice big thick slice of Market Share Pie and laugh all the way to the bank!
Contractors Can Break Free - Of the limiting thought patterns. The ones that keep you on the emotional roller coaster of when business is going poorly it will never get better and when business is going great go buy yourself a new pickup truck.
Get Your Business Process Management System - In place now! Dig your well before you are thirsty and you will be glad you did!

This Is Only The Tip - Of the Iceberg. Everything we publish in our blog posts, articles in other websites, and anything you can find on the web is nothing compared to what is available to you as our client. We show only the basic tools to open your mind to the possibilities that are available to you. 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. The same can be said about the best construction business consulting and accounting tools in the hands of a skilled finish carpenter. And I say that with respect and admiration for everyone in construction.
When You Become A Client - Then we can tap into our resources of knowledge and strategy banks. We use the reports hidden in your QuickBooks in order to diagnose and understand your construction business and develop plans and help you implement a path to success for you and you alone because every contractor has unique Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (S.W.O.T. Analysis) that when understood can lead to a Strategic Roadmap which cannot help but make a lot of money.
