Dr. Schleifer will provide specific and critical material on how to defend a construction organization during these challenging times.  Contractors are no longer saying it can't or won't happen to them and are genuinely concerned about what to do next.  Those who took work cheap, explored different types of work in different areas, may find this wasn’t a sustainable strategy.
