The Problem

In the Building & Remodeling Industry we often see two different instances of the same problem.

  • Trades people who start their own business while often very skilled in their respective fields, i.e. carpentry, plumbing electrical, etc. they often lack the understand and/or training in the realm of just what it takes to run a business and don’t have the knowledge and concepts such as cash flow vs. revenue or gross profit vs. net profit etc.
  • There is also an epidemic case of “Accidental Project Manager* Syndrome” where Lead Carpenters, Superintendents, and Construction Managers often have been “promoted” to their position with little or no training or education in actual trade skills of Project Management . (*see Patricia Ensworth’s The Accidental Project Manager: Surviving the Transition from Techie to Manager) and don’t understand the terms or concepts of critical path, dependency, float, and more.
