This interactive workshop will introduce you and your business to the critical information needed to make sure you are properly estimating and pricing your projects for profitability.  It will also include strategies you can use to successfully delegate construction projects to production employees so they can profitably complete projects on their own with the information created during the sales and estimating process.
