Strategic Planning for Growth

Please note that this course will take place on April 8 & 9 from 9:30am - 1:00pm and will be delivered via Zoom.  Participants will require a stable internet connection with access to audio tools (headset or speakers & microphone).


Imagine being able to make better than average profits, expand your capacity, ensure success and build a better company. This course was designed to do just that. It isn’t a miracle cure, it’s a program that teaches the fundamentals of strategic planning to construction professionals.

This course, specifically designed exclusively for contractors, is based on a theoretic, privately-owned company whose three principal shareholders have grown their 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.
During this 2- ½-day instructor-led live webinar and Gold Seal certified course, participants methodically work through all the segments to create a comprehensive 3-year Strategic Growth Plan and use it as the foundation for producing Business and Financial Plans. The results:
  • Revenues increase $3.9M,
  • Gross profits increase 1.3%,
  • G&A expenses decrease 0.6%,
  • Net operating income increases 1.5% and
  • Cash position improves by $1.2M.

  • Identify and enhance Strengths and Opportunities
  • Discover and mitigate Weaknesses and Threats
  • Strategic Growth Plan
  • Labour productivity improvements
  • Identify lack of resources
