Making Your Move

Who's The Boss?

To ensure attention to detail, the buck must stop with one person--the designated move manager. According to Mumma, it's preferable to hire an outside consultant to oversee each step of the planning and execution. But since most entrepreneurs work on tight budgets, you'll likely have to don that hat yourself--or count on a trusted employee--come moving time.

Valerio recommends entrepreneurs designate one employee to be the relocation manager and then free that person from as many of his or her other job responsibilities as possible. And once that person has been selected, he or she must be given freedom to do the job. The planning requires cooperation from your entire staff, not just the relocation manager. "There can be no weak link," Economaki says. "Everyone should have a job to do."
