By its nature, home building is a multi-discipline business that requires expertise in diverse areas. Understanding and mastering each of the 15 Critical Functions of Home Building, and more importantly the relationships between them, is the key to a winning organization and satisfied customers.
The NAHB International Builders’ Show® (IBS) Master Session, “From A (Accounting) to W (Warranty): Mastering the 15 Critical Functions of Home Building,” will address the role, details and interactions of critical business functions, including: vision, leadership and strategic planning, building lot acquisition and development, product development, estimating, purchasing, pricing, finance, accounting, marketing, sales, administration and customer selections, human resources, construction management and warranty.
In this three-hour advanced session, you will:
• Understand how mastering the 15 Critical Functions leads to financial success, how they relate to each other and how they can be effectively implemented.
• Learn the concept of Dynamic Interactive Thinking and its role in building a vibrant, flexible home building company.
• Gain a broader understanding of pricing strategies and how to successfully integrate the product development, marketing, sales, estimating and pricing functions.
