What It's About
The home building industry is more cyclical and more challenging than most industries. Do you know what else is challenging and complex? Operating a nuclear submarine. While the two may seem worlds apart, success in both often comes down to one primary skill—solving problems. With a focus on process (policies, procedures), people (training and development, leadership), and communication (organizational structure, communication channels), this session will demonstrate how one builder CEO applies many of the lessons learned in running a Navy submarine to the construction industry to make his company and team more efficient, productive and profitable.
