Workshop: Succession at All Levels for Contractors

Succession happens at all levels of a construction company, not just in regard to ownership. There is no single perfect solution for succession and there is an incredible difference between contractors in how effectively they manage the succession process. For every role you plan to fill for succession, you also need to backfill the preceding positions. What is the value of systematic succession at all levels? Under current market conditions, how can succession planning be used to build a stronger company?

This workshop brings together the most relevant principles, strategies, tactics, and tools based on individual experiences in the field as contractors, lessons learned working with hundreds of contractors across the United States, and experience of the many other experts in the construction industry and industry partners.


Learning Objectives

Navigating the Current Labor Market/Shortage: Learn how a well-defined and executed succession plan positively impacts your company’s ability to scale in spite of the shortage of craft and management labor.

Organizational Planning: How to navigate succession issues specific to contractors. How to objectively evaluate your company, team, and their relationship to the company mission, vision, and succession.

Communicating the Value of a solid succession plan across the team: Techniques for pragmatically quantifying the opportunities along any career path in your organization.

Owners should be critically interested in succession at all levels: How to change competing interests into aligned interests between those leaving and those staying. How does effective succession impact the value of the business under any exit strategy?



Who Should Attend:

Any Contractor within 10 years of succession

Owners, Executives, and Operations Managers

Financial Managers

Entry Level - No Prerequisites
