Managing the Lifeblood of Contracting ~ Cash Flow - Cash flow is one of the most important issues facing contractors today. More companies go bankrupt due to cash flow issues than due to profitability. Many things can and should be done to improve cash management practices. This 2 Hr. program combined with the 3 Hr. Cracking the WIP program will have you explore a range of tools and techniques, from simple to complex, that allow firms to manage and control cash flow.
March 17th, 8am-11am (PST)
Cracking The "WIP" ~ Driving Predictable Cost Projections - Tired of project managers who do not have a clear handle on how their projects are performing financially? Tired of bad field percent complete estimates? We find many contractors struggle with how to build a robust cost project process that provides for consistency and predictability. Profit fade at 90% complete is no longer an option in today's credit market. Banks and bonding companies are demanding contractors develop and implement robust cost controls. And, contrary to popular belief, there is only one way to set up a cost control system that allows you to consistently understand how your projects are performing.
