Today I had the pleasure of listening to Mr Lindsay Pears (Defence Envoy) for the Queensland Government give a presentation to Sunshine Coast businesses on what the release of the Defence White paper means to Australian industry.
Throughout the presentation it was obvious that the construction industry is going to be a huge winner from the latest Defence stance. Major construction will be occurring throughout Australia to meet the growing Defence Capability requirements. Of interest to Queensland construction companies is the amount of work coming your way in Queensland. Projects at Amberley, Enoggera, Rockhampton, Townsville and Cairns are going to have savvy construction companies maintain a full booking schedule of work.
There are many construction companies who will, however, fail to benefit from the huge wave of work because they are not prepared and not eligible to subcontract to the larger primes.
So what do these companies need to do now ... today ... to place themselves in the box seat for this avalanche of potential work?
They need to develop their processes and procedures to prove they can deliver quality products and services. Easily said but harder to implement especially if your business is on a growth path and you currently don't have the time to scratch yourself.
There is a solution! Its called an Integrated Business Management System requiring minimal input but providing maximum outcomes. Check out the Defence White paper here.
