In This Issue ....
I often wondered if a genie appeared in my business and said. “Master tell me what you want to accomplish in one year and I will help you get it done in 90 days.” I likely would say, “Go away, I am too busy and what possibly could be accomplished that fast?”
It’s true when it seems like every new thing depends on you and there is lots to do; that making fundamental change seems unlikely.
So, dozens of CI companies have told us over the years. But then, there are those that said, maybe you have something that may help me remove some pain in my business. Things that I have struggled to get past for years. For those, we have attempted to show them a 90-day path to improvement. And for many, they have changed their business futures and fortunes forever.
It’s 13 weeks of programmed change. Here it is in a snapshot:
WEEK 1 STANDARDIZED CHART OF ACCOUNTS
WEEK 2 ITEM LINKAGE
WEEK 3 MIX & MARGIN ACTIONS; BID MGMT ADJUSTMENTS/REVIEW
WEEK 4 JOB ESTIMATES IN QUICKBOOKS
WEEK 5 WEEKLY PRODUCTION MEETINGS
WEEK 6 REQUEST FOR PAYMENT PROCESS
WEEK 7 WHAT THE DASHBOARDS TELL US
WEEK 8 AR & TERMS REVISITED
WEEK 9 PRODUCTION FORECAST
WEEK 10 SALES TRACKING
WEEK 11 IDENTIFY NEXT OBSTACLES
WEEK 12 MEASURE SUCCESS; SET HIGHER GOALS
WEEK 13 THE NEXT 90 DAYS OF IMPROVEMENT
Here is what we know, when companies embark on this path; they experience improvement, growth, better efficiency, less chaos and financial results that for many have escaped them for years.
Of course, all this can wait and for many it has been back-burner for years. Getting there, does seem like a year full of work. And, it happens right alongside of you running the business. Better.
We now have a service to get you there without coaching. Our QuickBooks dashboards coupled with an easy to implement weekly program guide keeps you on pace to accomplish more than ever before.
