Becoming a Field Manager

Posted to Event by Mr. Michael Krebsbach of Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc. Eastern Pa. Chapter at 4:49 PM

Purpose: To move field supervisors toward thinking and acting more like a manager. We call it "Taking Off the Tool Belt". As an average project contract amount is the same size as a small business' revenue, it is critical that a foreman or superintendent act more as if they have total profit and loss responsibility.

In our class, we will give to your field staff the right focus, processes and tools to improve project profitability and schedule adherence.

The aim of the course is to dispel the myths of good field management with the facts. Everyone has learned from someone else. Only through careful study and analysis have several construction industry trends and effective field techniques been uncovered. This course will meet your expectations of “real world” issues and answers.

Management Fundamentals

Being bossy is not the same thing as being a good supervisor.

But most supervisors are promoted from within, meaning they have product skills, but not necessarily people skills. “Management Fundamentals” can help.

This Level I, one day course assists new supervisors as they transition from their role as a worker, supervising former peers. Participants will learn the techniques for successful delegation and discuss the roles and responsibilities of supervisors.
