Maintaining strong backlog, sustaining profitability, finding and keeping top talent...just some of the priorities that are top-of-mind with today’s A/E/C firm leaders. Of course, knowing what to do is the first step towards being an effective principal. But, actually doing it is often what separates the “real deal” firm leaders from the others.
“Real deal” firm leaders aren’t just born that way. Rather, they develop through proven guidance and experience. They develop by staying close to those who have been there and learning from the seasoned experts. They develop by attending PSMJ’s A/E/C Principals Bootcamp.

No other program packs this kind of punch when it comes to what it really takes to develop and implement winning proposal strategies for A/E/C firms.Learn More

Instead of being another ordinary seminar teaching you how to develop a plan, this insightful and data-rich program also takes you through virtually every transition planning obstacle you will encounter (from affordability to leadership development and more) and how to overcome it.Learn More

This hands-on two-day workshop is extremely useful for those who are looking for all levels of financial information – from understanding basic financial indicators your firm should be tracking to interpreting predictive financial metrics for more accurate financial forecasting. Did you know that the average firm spends $36,000 of cash paying new employees before they collect the first dollar for that new employee’s time? And, it takes over two years to break even on cash flow. Fortunately, a few tweaks in some key financial metrics can dramatically reduce the negative cash flow and time it takes to generate positive cash flow in a growing firm. This is just one example of what you can learn in this popular program.Learn More
