What Does It Mean if You Are Always “Firefighting?”

An FBI consultant asked Wayne for some advice on an assignment where the senior leader is always “putting out fires” in his construction firm. Wayne commented that it sounded like a poorly run company, but then he had to stop and think: WHY is constant firefighting emblematic of a contractor that is poorly led and managed? More importantly, what can a contractor DO to get off that firefighting hamster wheel?

Please tune in this week as Wayne gives nine characteristics of a poorly led and managed construction company and offers five tactics for getting off that ugly treadmill. What do you think? What are the symptoms of a poorly run contractor, and what advice would you offer for ending the cycle? Please share with us in the comments.
