Interview – Bryan Kaplan

Not many designers I know use change orders. It seems like something only contractors would need right? Wrong! In fact, I have been desperately trying to implement them into my process!

Today’s podcast guest is Bryan Kaplan and he shares how change orders can change your business (no pun intended ) for the better. We go into depth about when to use them and how they will help keep everyone on the same page and HAPPY!!

Bryan has always recognized the value in finding the most efficient and repeatable path to complete any task, and in his years in residential construction, he was always at the forefront of companies when it came to integrating technology to leverage everyone’s time. Fast forward to today, Bryan works as a business consultant for residential renovation and new build companies helping them streamline their processes, integrate repeatable processes, checklists, templates, and technology to allow them to do more in less time. His vast experience has given Bryan the ability to always approach problems from a “big picture” perspective and solve for the right problem.
