Continuum Advisory Group helps firms prepare for and successfully navigate “strategic transitions,” often by undertaking an organizational analysis of these firms, reviewing construction cost management efforts, diagnosing accounting and financial issues, and strategy development. Typical projects include strategic plan design; financial performance analysis; development and implementation of tools to reduce construction cost, life-cycle cost, and operational friction; restructuring of processes and procedures – often using LEAN Construction techniques; and leader development.

Strategic Organizational Development
Optimized program delivery
PLAN - Strategic Program Planning X
Effective capital construction and facilities maintenance plans must align with corporate objectives such as new product development, sustainability, ROI, and risk mitigation. We maximize the success of design, engineering, construction and facilities maintenance departments by driving innovative thinking and bottom-line results. Our strategic program planning process is focused on program definition, program budgeting, internal versus external resource allocation, risk evaluation and mitigation, and performance benchmarking.
BUY - Strategic Sourcing X
Winning teams aren’t just made up of internal staff. Organizations must determine how best to buy and manage suppliers, or external talent in our dynamic marketplace. We assess current strategies and develop new ones that maximize the value received for the dollar spent on capital construction and facilities maintenance services. We focus on evaluating and designing sourcing strategies for project and program delivery, supplier evaluation and selection processes, and relationship governance strategies including alliance development.
MANAGE - Strategic Organizational Development X
Best-in-class teams deliver capital construction and facilities maintenance programs that provide real competitive advantage for your organization. We help organizations determine the right skills and knowledge to maintain internally, learn how to hire, train and manage the best talent effectively, and develop or re-engineer key internal processes that result in outstanding program performance.
