1) Adopt a true reuse strategy and apply real capital to true common solutions.
2) Retirement attrition is taking the experienced employees out if the company. Provide capital to support senior mentorship to college grads being hired.
3) Invest in solutions that make information easier to navigate; current systems entail many wasted hours finding that one needed document or detail.
4) Stop signing up for unrealizable schedules and budgets, just to win the contract; lost leaders have no place in the business. 5) Review original bids against proposal wins, when budgets are not met, learn from past bid winning mistakes.

Add an evaluation system for experience. I’ve met some very smart college graduates who work in a silo mentally. When we speak diversity, it should be applied to those who have experience too! A person with a degree can get hired or promoted but can not manage a production line, etc, over an experienced person. This is why certain business units are having process issues!

Hire more people with experience . 4 years at a college does not equal over 30 years experience in the trades. Now we have a bunch of smart youth but getting hands dirty is not what they do.
