Did you know that 25% of A/E firms of all sizes consistently make 20+% Operating Profit Rates and deliver 30+% Pre-Tax Returns on Equity? Moreover, there is convincing evidence that these firms are not ‘one-year-wonders’. These High Performing Firms are realizing virtually double industry-average financial results year-after-year.

Discover which specific operating & financial characteristics – Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) – these High Performing Firms have in common.

Then, investigate several identifiable practices – not all financial – High Performing Firms incorporate for consistent success and profitability:
• Strong project management habits.
• A culture of quality.
• Attention to financial issues as much a focus of leaders and managers as are design, and marketing.
• Hire for talent first, skill and experience second.
• Reinvestment of profits in training and technology.

By the end, you will be able to evaluate your own firm's operational and financial performance, and analyze practices that can be incorporated into your practice to achieve and maintain above-average success year-after-year.
