“While we had a semblance of a business plan, it was totally insufficient for our needs. Your work with us on developing a real plan has helped us to focus on our immediate needs. As a young company we were “chasing too many rabbits” so to speak. Now we are much more focused toward those aspects of our business that have the greatest potential for creating cash flow in the near future.
President, Inventerriffic, LLC.
“I have learned to delegate and trust that the work will get done”
“I am much more aware of my own time management issues and how to more effectively deal with them”
“Completing this program with other managers (our peers) has brought us together as a team as well as improved our ability to manage and lead others”
“I now understand what Jeff means by a development program versus a training class. I not only know what to do, but I have developed the attitude and habits necessary to continue to manage and set goals”.
“I have become a much better listener both at work and at home. My relationships are changing for the better”.
Participants in Management Development Program
In 2007 we elected to have Johnston Technical Services (now Goal Advantage) process map our personal property tax return compliance process. Prior to mapping the process, each professional prepared and filed client personal property statements using their own way. The process mapping procedure created an overall standard return preparation process that included standardized documents. The process developed was procedurally strict but also included flexibility for each manager to vary from the process based on the needs of our clients. The process became more efficient through a reduction in chargeable hours per engagement. The number of internal corrections was decreased by 25%. The estimated cost savings for a season of returns was $94,500.
In 2008, our second key process was mapped and redesigned. Once again the process was standardized and best practices were incorporated. Phase 1 of the process showed a 60% reduction in cycle time. This alone saved the company $1500.00 per appeal.
