Project Business for Contractors

When projects meet business, there is no time for trial and error: Customer projects must bring money home.

For project contractors, customer satisfaction is not enough. Profitability matters. So do cash flow and competitive edge.

As trainers and consultants, we invoke the mindset and methods of modern Project Business Management and make it the firm foundation for your income stream in a competitive business environment. In addition, we bring the door opener for new business: certification.

For newcomers, we shorten the ramp-up to becoming reliable performers. For seasoned professionals, we turn experience into knowledge.

Together, we replace trial and error with educated professionalism. Because in project business, trial is expensive and error even more.

Project Business for Customers

The paradigm shift from internal projects to cross-corporate project business is happening right now.

From the small project done by the friendly vendor in the neighbourhood to big mega projects - the trend to outsourcing projects is measurable.
