think like an owner imageThis course for the ready mixed concrete industry teaches its participants about financial management and performance of successful ready mix operations. The course was developed based on insights gleaned from NRMCA’s annual Performance Benchmarking Survey and intended to give participants an overview of the industry, focusing on identifying and addressing the factors that are causing the ready mix industry to see poor returns and deteriorating results in a strong market.

The course examines elements of successful firms and teaches participants how to manage profitable operations – from reading and understanding financial statements to thinking in terms of economic profit. This course is a must-attend for plant managers to company presidents who want to run their operations profitably. Participants can expect hands-on exercises and in-class quizzes.
