The Objectives:

This growing construction company needed to find a solution to sustain long term business growth, and allow the CEO to step back from day to day operations. The business needed to undergo significant change in order to drive the multi million pound growth they were targeting.

The Solution:

Duo first worked with the CEO to outline a clear strategy for growth, and implemented a robust operating structure across the business, using the EOS/Traction model, to drive up engagement with growth plans, and insert key levels of accountability across the whole business.

From there, Duo worked with the CEO to put in place a leadership team who would support the execution of this growth plan at a senior level, and implemented a leadership team structure with meetings focussed on reporting on, and driving of key measurables, and proactive issue solving of any challenges that may be in the way of their growth. 

From this, Duo worked with the team over a number of years to put in place the key cultural pillars from this change strategy that would continue to enable the growth the business was looking for. This included everything from implementation of a clear vision, and living values & behaviours that were integrated at all levels, both in the office functions and out in the field operations; to a career roadmap & training plan to train & develop the behaviours needed for success; to an inbound recruitment strategy that positioned the business as an employer of choice to attract the quality and level of talent needed to sustain growth levels.

The Measures of Success:

  • The business grew by £20M over a 3 year period.
  • The business significantly increased their profit levels.
  • The business was able to put in place a fully functional, integrated leadership team, that reduced the CEO time in day to day operations, allowing them to focus on just driving the strategy of the business.
  • The business now has a solid operating system, and cultural pillars, that support the business through continued growth and change, with high levels of team performance.
