In the Weeds


There didn’t seem to be a way out of the never-ending to-do list. Everything fell on Mike’s shoulders. When he did delegate tasks, Mike ended up with more work than when he started. He knew he needed a better workflow for his team.

“I needed to figure out how to offload some of that work because the team wanted to do it.”

Empowering the Team

Mike had a team that wanted more opportunities to contribute. How could he effectively delegate larger parts of the workload? He found the solution in the preconstruction process and nailing the handoff to the field.

“Figuring out how to do preconstruction right was really what we were after.”

“It didn’t feel like work to me because I felt like I could see how this can help me. I think that’s an important component: when you think something’s helping you, it doesn’t feel like work.”

Bandwidth for Growth

At first, Mike was unsure about joining SYCB. With all the busyness in his company, he didn’t know if he would have the mental bandwidth to take on extra work. But once he started to implement the process from start to finish, projects became more organized, and he felt more relaxed.

Everything is in Place

With a couple of successful projects under their belts, the team is about to take on a more sizeable job—and everything is already in place. Everyone knows what they are doing. The team is excited and ready to go.

“The team is happier. Everyone’s on the same page. Everyone’s got responsibilities. The implementation sheet is one of the components I really like because that is the delegation in motion.”
