Nolan Consulting Group

Business Planning Program

All successful businesses start with a clear vision – At Nolan Consulting Group (NCG), our business coaches have been helping contractors within the Painting, Landscaping, Concrete & Paving, General Contracting industries and more across the US and Canada achieve full potential of their businesses for years.

As part of our 3 month Business Planning Program, your NCG Coach will walk you through our Cascading Planning Cycle (CPC), our goal-based planning system that produces guiding documents for vision achievement at all levels in an organization. It is a systematic approach that creates organizational alignment, employee engagement and exponentially increases a company’s chances of achieving the vision.

  • What is my Vision for the future?
  • What are my company’s values and mission?
  • What is my purpose? Am I playing in the roles meant for others?
  • The existing organizational structure, is it broken? What does it look like in three years?
  • What does the annual budget look like?
  • Are my Big Rocks defined?
  • What are my strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats – both as a company and as an owner?

Now Choose Your Path

With a team of coaches that has decades of experience building high-performance companies, we have the skills to effectively improve your performance through focus and accountability. Our signature programs are a unique blend of consulting and coaching, advising contractors on staying accountable for their goals, and overcoming implementation obstacles to achieve the visions they have for their company.


As consultants, we help you define winning by documenting your vision (what you want from your business) and setting meaningful goals for both you and your people.


As coaches, we understand your unique strengths and weaknesses. We hold you and your team accountable and keep you focused on achieving your goals through a regular follow-up schedule.


After completing the Business Planning Program and working through the Cascading Planning Cycle, you will work with your coach to determine the next step for your business.
