Members must have a strategy to deal with this in their market. A sales, acquisition and/or succession plan is critical for organizational perpetuity and succession strategies of the principal, key managers and senior executives. Members must create a culture that recognizes and blends generational differences. It is imperative to understand the millennial's desire for corporate consciousness and how this will impact their willingness to stay in place long term. The need for skilled technicians in all segments of the industry continues to escalate and necessitates creative recruitment practices, heightened training and more reliance on diagnostic tools and mobile technologies to augment the workforce. Members must embrace data mining techniques and predictive analytics to increase revenues, cut costs, improve customer relationships, enhance the sales process and reduce risks. The economy is improving but members must maintain vigilance and develop a plan for the next downturn. Government and safety regulations continue to become more stringent and complex.
