Profitable Contracting

Many contractors have labour productivity concerns, high overhead costs, below-budget profits and one continuous headache with cash flow. The six-hour Profitable Contracting course provides operating, field personnel and administrative staff the systems and processes required to manage their expenses and improve profitability.

Profitable Contracting discusses both operational and financial management issues I experienced during my career of over 35 years many of which will apply to your company: profit requirements, estimating, project management, labour productivity, human resource skills, materials and tools management, change orders, job costing, cash flow, AR collections, risk management, overhead controls, asset controls and a host of others.

All participants receive and take home a detailed course manual complete with all the topics, exercises and schedules need to improve their business.
