    Beyond Intuition: Financial Management for Small Firm Architects
    As a financial management tool, intuition has its limitations. While most small firm owners have a good sense of what’s happening at their firms, operational indicators such as cash flow shortages or mounting receivables don’t tell the whole story. Strategic decisions including hiring and moving to a larger office require understanding of financial trends on both a macro and micro level. In this highly interactive workshop, participants will learn how to tell if their firm is being profitable, how to determine billing rates, and to use financial scenario planning tools.
