The construction industry is changing and what once felt familiar and comfortable to some, is in the midst of a full transformation. Most electrical contractors have experienced this first hand in your contracts and on jobsites. One of the major aspects driving the accelerated rate of change is business analytics. The future of construction will be based heavily on data and clearly defined Key Performance Indicators that will impact every EC. Companies leveraging data will improve their decision making process providing them with a significant competitive advantage. This is already a strong area of focus for owners and general contractors. If we are not prepared they can use their data against us to shift more risk on the trades. Join us to see how NECA’s Innovation team is creating a roadmap for success to help our contractors embrace digital transformation.
- Define Key Performance Indicators and how benchmarking can reduce risk and increase margins.
- Discuss how analytics are impacting other industries and what can we learn from them.
- Communicate the importance of data and how it will impact every electrical contractor in the future.
- Identify challenges associated with collecting data and turning it into information that we can trust and leverage to improve our decision-making process.
