The United States Government has spent years and millions of dollars to train and cultivate a culture of discipline, focus, and service in each military service member. Front Line Advisory Group’s (FLAG) unique composition, led by veterans, positions them as the ideal candidates to help you deliver capital improvement programs on time, on budget, and to your expectations.

“Follow Me”

The fighter-leader concept emphasizes leading from the front, setting standards, and building a cohesive team. This approach translates to program management by instilling strong leadership, effective communication, and decision-making. Infrastructure and development projects demand precise coordination, where a fighter-leader’s proactive direction aids in overcoming hurdles, managing risk, and achieving project milestones. Drawing from leadership lessons in diverse fields, Program Management Consultants (PMC) can create environments that promote collaboration, excellence, and successful project outcomes.

“Good Order and Discipline”

Veterans bring a heightened sense of accountability and integrity to contract compliance, honed through their military training. In the military, adhering to protocols and regulations is non-negotiable. This ethos seamlessly aligns with the demand for contract compliance in the capital improvement industry. FLAG’s understanding of the importance of abiding by agreements, attention to detail, and ethical conduct ensures that projects remain in compliance with contractual obligations, mitigating potential risks and disputes.

“If You’re Not Fifteen Minutes Early, You’re Late”

Fighting our nation’s battles requires precision planning, scheduling, and synchronized execution. While the worker on the excavator is winning the battle, the planning, finance, and logistics wins the war. FLAG’s focus on punctuality and schedule enforcement is inherent to the military ethos, translating into efficient time management and timely project completion.

“Cutting Through the Fog of War”

Communication lies at the heart of both military operations and capital improvement projects. Veterans’ proficiency in conveying information clearly, managing expectations, and fostering open dialogues is a significant asset in stakeholder communication. Their leadership experience in coordinating with diverse teams and conveying complex information ensures that all project stakeholders remain well-informed and aligned. FLAG mitigates potential conflicts and fosters collaboration with stakeholders, officials, and the community in achieving project goals.

“Doing More with Less”

Core competencies in the construction industry often lack financial and risk management expertise. Service members are required to manage restrictive budgets in high-pressure situations of growing mission sets. Accountability to tax-payers and completing the mission is central to controlling costs, optimizing resource allocation, and delivering within budgetary constraints. FLAG’s ability to allocate resources effectively, anticipate risks of cost overruns, and maintain accurate financial records ensures that projects stay on track financially.

“One Team, One Fight”

Military veterans are no strangers to leadership roles, managing risk, and decision-making under pressure. These skills translate into effective vendor management within the capital improvement landscape. Veterans’ ability to lead, negotiate, and foster collaborative relationships with vendors ensures that resources are optimally allocated, and projects progress smoothly.

“Forged in the Crucible of Combat”

FLAG brings the same no-fail intensity to the I-35 corridor they had while managing the construction of roads and police stations across Iraq and Afghanistan during combat. FLAG’s management of over 75 projects worth nearly $1 billion and successful completion of 32 projects on time and on budget demonstrates the effectiveness of military veterans as the “Force of Choice”.

Military veterans possess a valuable skill set that finds a natural home as PMCs in the multifaceted world of capital improvement. Veterans’ discipline, adaptability, leadership acumen, and commitment to ethical conduct contribute to their effectiveness. By leveraging these qualities, your capital improvement program stands to benefit greatly from the remarkable capabilities veterans bring to the table, fostering successful projects and enduring partnerships.
