If asked to build a regular single family detached livable house in 2 hours, or even 3 hours, you may say it can’t be done. If you were told it can be done, you would think it is a child’s logic problem, with some silly caveat and not worth your time. You would know even television programs with a staff of hundreds take a week to do it.
But, if you knew your life, genuinely, depended on it, you would start redefining the rules and start asking questions. What type of house? Do you want a doll house? Is it from a kit? It would not be made of concrete, right?
Asking the right questions is a crucial step, and complete discovery is essential in every aspect of your business, and specifically for the builder managing to a schedule as well.
If you treated it like a genuine life and death situation, you would plan, strategize and scheme to do everything you could. Today, success takes “everything you could”.
For your employees, your ability to plan is critical for them, and their way of life is significantly impacted by your ability, or inability, to schedule. Your business viability is directly tied to your ability to plan and schedule. Whether it is planning to build, building a plan, selling to a plan, or planning to sell, it all involves steps. If you think a 3 hour house can not be built, I invite you to see the real world example, of success. Check out http://www.2hourhouse.com/ More...
