You’ll learn about their biggest concerns for future success. Your peers are keenly focused on improving project performance to help them overcome potential future barriers standing in their way. While finding and getting new business remains very important, it ranks behind five other challenges directly related to turning projects on time and on budget. 

Construction pros also named the aspects of their businesses with the greatest potential for improvement. While factors related to financial and project outcomes made the top three list, they also mentioned a less obvious one—reputation.
