This book was not written for a construction company. But the guidance it provides can help your construction-based company thrive. Here you'll find solid advice on policies and procedures -- they're what make a company run efficiently and legally.

You'll find a definitive guide to creating accurate policies and procedures documents that apply to all aspects and procedures required of your business. This isn't a stuffy office-type book. You'll enjoy the unusually friendly, informal approach to setting up and and creating procedures that anyone in your company can follow.

Loaded with examples, checklists, guidelines, quick tips, work plans, and forms, it is ready for immediate use.

The book shows you how to:

  • Write (and design) documents clearly (so employees will understand and follow the policies)
  • Plan, analyze, and research each element
  • Help employees increase efficiency, reduce mistakes and frustration, and save time and money -- by providing clear guidelines to follow
  • Avoid legal mistakes that can get a company in trouble

If you run a construction, engineering, architectural, or property management company, you'll marvel at the creative ideas provided here to get everyone in your company on the same page!
