I recall a conversation with one of my mentors shortly after I founded my construction company. As the topic moved to risk management, I remember him saying, “Your company will only be as strong as the weakest link in the chain.” Those words really stuck with me, and I would often look to identify the weakest link in my company. 
Recently, I had an acquaintance tell me that his son wanted to get into the construction industry when he graduates from high school. He was asking for my thoughts on how to go about it. To sum up our conversation, I told him that with some construction management training and a few years of on-the-job experience, the industry would be wide open to his son's choosing.
If you have ever built the same type of building more than once, the second was probably easier and more profitable than the first. You likely reviewed and examined the first project to find ways to be more efficient, such as identifying building methods to save labor and material costs and considering when to hire subcontractors rather than self-performing work. Scheduling becomes more accurate and efficient from this learning experience.
