“The Builder Academy facilitates training and systems analysis for small to medium-sized ProBuilders. Our clients come to us when they realize they need better decision-making tools than they currently have. We assist by training owners and managers to operate their business more efficiently, develop and implement marketing programs, manage their human, material and equipment assets more effectively, interface with their clients safely and profitably, and organize and analyze their financial information in a meaningful way.
Our typical client is with us from the time he or she starts the business through the time when they get sufficiently large to begin delegating most of the managerial responsibilities. By that time the foundation has been laid for continued operation and growth.
The branding and marketing is in place;
the financial reporting is providing useful information;
the business processes are established and being documented.”
