     My New “Bumwad”

A study of the Brittain & White methodology by managing partner, architect, contractor, real estate developer, Charlie White. He explains how Brittain & White saves millions of dollars annually by improving their productivity as a business. In addition, he explains in detail how easy it is to implement these same methodologies into any organization.

The Secret to Brittain & White’s Success:
