Time: Wednesday, 11:00 AM - 12:00 Noon

The traditional approaches to boundary surveys used by many land surveyors makes little business sense. They expose the surveyor to unnecessary risk of reduced profit or financial loss. In this seminar we examine three (3) of these traditional approaches and discuss why they don’t work from a business perspective. We then consider what land surveyors can learn about improving their profit performance on boundary services by looking at the way other small business people approach their work. The speaker then presents an approach he uses to improve his profit performance on boundary surveys: phasing. This discussion includes the reasons to phase a project, the project types that are best suited to phasing, and tips for how to phase a project. The seminar concludes by walking the audience through an example project and discussing how to propose on the project so that a phased boundary survey can be used.
