Summary

Résumé de la présentation

Less than three months into 2020, the world encountered an unprecedented “Black Swan” event in the form of a deadly virus known as COVID-19.  As 2020 began, many construction organizations were predicting another year of success bolstered by strong backlogs in just about every sector.  With the world slowly looking at restarting and getting back to "normal", the best business leaders are looking at their organization's strategic imperatives for the balance of 2020 and beyond.There are significant questions all leaders must deeply reflect on in the short and long-term as it relates to their business.  This framework is to begin the steps necessary to support the business tactics and strategies during this time as well as preparations for the business long-term to ensure continuity.  Operational productivity, training, design, customers, and even business succession planning are all items that require careful consideration and proactive efforts to ensure long-term business success.

During this brief session, you will learn the following:

  • Discover the important questions a construction business leader must address immediately
  • Examine the business initiatives that must be addressed in every strategic plan
  • Understand the most effective and best response a construction leader can provide to the business
  • In the end, provide leaders a series of thought provoking questions and "So What?" responses to effectively address the new "normal"
