Title: Top Ten Reasons Why Construction Businesses Fail

Description: The Small Business Association (SBA) indicates that 20% of all small businesses will fail in the first year, 50% will fail within five years and 67% within 10 years of going in business. Construction companies have a higher than average rate of failure, with only 36.4% reaching their fifth year. Blame for the failure often rests on some “other” source; rarely does an owner look at themselves as the cause of the failure. This program will look at the most common causes of construction business failures and what owners/leaders can do to avoid the common pitfalls.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn about the key elements of a successful small business.
2. Understand how to maintain focus on the "right stuff" within the company.
3. Find out how to evaluate your company to ensure success.
