Project MGMT Secrets Behind 2 Rapid Growth Contractors - with Iain Kent, Greg Hasler, Zack Wojtowicz

We did a Project Management Roundtable a couple of months ago with some of our highest-performing members in the construction space. It was so popular and well-received that we decided to release it as a Contractor Evolution episode.

As you no doubt have experienced, most (but not all) Project Managers in construction and trades are professional firefighters.

This is a problem.

Underequipped PMs burn themselves out and eventually hurt morale, but more importantly, mismanaged jobs can make or break our year-end P&Ls.

Our live roundtable featured Greg Hasler of Hasler Homes and Iain Kent of Eagleview Construction, where we discussed their evolution story from chaotic to dialled-in. They dove into the systems that have made the biggest difference, the personality profile of a rockstar PM, as well as where you might find one.

Episode highlights:

  • 3 PM ‘Red Flags’ that will tell you things can be improved on
  • What makes a great PM (from the perspective of highly effective contractors)
  • How to hold PMs accountable for the results they were hired to achieve in your business (including which KPIs you should be tracking)
  • The number of jobs should your PM’s be able to manage at one time
  • The PM qualifications you should look for and where to send PMs to learn proper PM systems for your business
  • The best way to keep your field crews (and your subs) engaged with the PM systems and actually filling out daily logs (spoiler – yes, it is possible)
