So you plan on moving your office or warehouse in the next six months or so?  Now’s the time to plan for the big day and for months of smooth operations thereafter.


Here’s a fundamental game plan to ensure all goes well:


  • Appoint a coach, whose primary task in the pre- and post-move coordination is to oversee all aspects of the shift.
  • The coach will recruit his team members, based on experience, maturity and company loyalty.
  • Assign a crucial operations role to each.Prior to all this, however, the team’s president/owner must give his utmost in selecting a performance perfecting field. That’s where we come in.What size field is needed for this game? Get a copy of our needs analysis so you can figure out the size for office space.

  • What are the costs? Do you need new furniture or equipment and how much will it cost to move? Is your current phone or computer system in good enough condition to withstand the move?
