  • Profitable Contracting, April 13-14 - MORE INFO


Designed exclusively for construction professionals, this course will teach you the fundamentals and processes you need to create a 3-year growth plan and use it as the foundation for producing business and financial plans.

Companies interested in growing their construction businesses need to make certain they have a workable growth strategy; for that growth, they need a strategic plan to make better than average profits, expand capacity, ensure success, and build a healthier company. This course was designed to do just that.

The materials and content for this course are practical and based on real-world situations. The course will take you through creating and implementing a three-year Strategic Growth Plan for the following scenario:

  • A privately-owned company with three principal shareholders has grown its business into one of the foremost mechanical contractors in the province. Annual revenues of $25M have established the company as an industry leader. The shareholders recognize that operations and profits have been stable for the past four years and feel this is a prime time to grow the company to a new level. To do that, they will create and implement a three-year Strategic Growth Plan.

By the end of the course, you will be able to:

  • Identify and enhance strengths and opportunities
  • Discover and mitigate weaknesses and threats
  • Create a Strategic Growth Plan
  • Develop labour productivity improvements
  • Identify lack of resources
  • Elaborate business plan
  • Elaborate financial plan
  • Analyze Key Performance Indicators and
  • Identify increased revenues, profits, and cash flow
