Developing Project Managers into Business Managers for Sustainable Growth.

Good Project Managers understand the work, beginning with a good schedule that includes labor, equipment, and subcontractors. They also understand long lead procurement items, changes of conditions, and final punch list completion. Good Business Managers see the broader picture. They conduct all business with a visionary attitude, looking at every aspect of the current work and seeing how every interaction or reaction affects the business today and could affect the business in the future.

Why do you want your Project Managers to think more like managers of your business? Understanding the “Why” for your organization is critical for achieving sustainable growth.
