Look for the Category “DBE Series” to find the articles specifically written for DBEs AKA Disadvantaged Business Enterprises.
I have worked with DBEs over the past several years as a financial and lean process expert. In my DBE series, I have strived to answer the most common questions that DBEs ask. Here is a handful that I haven’t gotten to yet.
How do we get that first chance to work with a significant potential customer?
What will really make our customers say they want us and only us?
What can I do to smooth my work with my customers?
What can we do to make ourselves the #1 subcontractor they have in mind for their projects?
These are fantastic questions! Rather than writing articles, please feel free to call or email me so that we can discuss these questions (and your situation) privately.
Please enjoy the series!
