Key Tips for Small Business Operators and the Marine Industry
OBSERVATION AND COMMENT AFTER 30 YEARS IN THE MARINE INDUSTRY
I work in the large-yacht construction sector, where most companies, irrespective of size or gross annual revenue, exhibit a relatively flat organizational structure. That makes most of them "small" businesses, whether they have six, sixty, or six hundred employees. The problems and solutions such small businesses face require sector-specific adapted approaches. And it is in that area which I have specialized.
The following articles are the result of decades of work in the marine industry...
This library of articles is presented to you as the distilled product of my decades of work in a variety of circumstances within the marine industry — circumstances which have seen me working variously as a yacht designer, boat builder, marine operations and business manager, marine industry consultant, marine marketing and communications specialist, yachting magazine writer and editor, yacht surveyor, marine industry educator, and interest-based mediator.
If you have an interest in the marine industry or small business operations and management in general, I invite you to read some or all of the following articles, for what they may be worth.
And I invite you to contact me with your questions and comments...
As well, should you have a problem or a project you'd like to discuss, I invite you to contact me directly, either by email or Skype, to talk on a strictly confidential basis.
I work worldwide, both remotely and on-site, depending on the situation. For example, I am currently supervising the construction of a new 80-footer in Taiwan, as owner's representative and consultant. So whatever your needs are, or wherever you may be, I might be able to help.
