This introductory segment addresses the need for a sharp focus on field productivity and explains why and how to improve field performance. The discussion will include (1) why monitoring and measuring field productivity is more important than other phases of the work or parts of the company, (2) intelligent use of field resources and staffing, (3) how to measure productivity, (4) how to develop standard procedures and systems to create a lean operational process, and (5) how to predict and drive toward positive outcomes.

Upon completion of this seminar, attendees will be able to:

  • Create schedules to include measurable milestones with precise labor hours and dollar goals.
  • Accurately predict the hours and dollars necessary to complete projects from any point in the progress and timeline.
  • Build better teams with measurable productivity improvement.
