Pretty Good Ideas
We are a general contractor and we have been facing adversity for years it seems. Litigation?, Always a threat. The issues rarely repeat themselves and it is extremely taxing on our team from top to bottom to try to prove every dollar we are entitled to on our jobs. Are there any changes in our philosophy that we can implement that might help us avoid or minimize these expensive and annoying disputes? Always in the Ring.
Dear AIR ,
You know by now that these projects take a life of their own, each with separate seasons, phases and tone. The influences of the various project leaders all along the chain and their willingness to work together toward a fair and profitable result for all is the key. Your question is one of culture and philosophy so the answer is ….well… there is no one answer. In such situations, we find it best to reflect in song. Here are Ten Tips to live by that will help keep you out of the ring, as told by some Motown Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Greats. Thank us later! YouDig?
