Session Title: Environment versus Execution
Session Description: Is the current 10 plus year economic expansion the new normal? Was the 2009 great recession the anomaly? If this is true, how would you know it? These are some key questions for any member of the lumber supply chain from timber site to job site. If the current building pace is the new normal, it makes sense to spend more management time working your execution in your space rather than forecasting. This presentation will get you to think about these possible scenarios.
