The importance of a procedure manual
Posted by: ZoŽ Samuel on 9/6/2011 1:10:46 PM

When I first started working for C-TEC (Asyma's Edmonton branch before it merged with Lethbridge), I did the internal books. One of the SWI's (standard work instructions) I created for myself was a revaluation instruction sheet as I had never worked with a multi-currency database before. Initially I made the instructions very specific to what I needed to do for C-TEC, but within a day or two of completing this instruction sheet Glenn asked if I could modify it to be more generic and professional looking so he could give it to a client. That same instruction sheet has been reproduced to well over a dozen different clients (if not more) from its original creation 7 years ago.

When things don't make sense to others
Posted by: ZoŽ Samuel on 6/22/2011 4:27:51 PM

I have been involved with 2 separate discussions with potential clients that wanted to modernize their accounting systems but keep it exactly the same as it is. What I mean by this is they were interested in getting onto the current version of Sage Accpac as long as I could guarantee that their reports, their data input, and their way of doing business would be exactly the same as it currently is now.

Small Changes, Big Results
Posted by: Keith Greeno on 11/26/2010 1:13:54 PM

The recipe for success in any type of economy is in the following basic business fundamentals. Good management is always at the heart of these fundamentals. We must consistently - Decide what is important (strategy), then set goals (Plan), build a system (organize), follow the plan (execute), then step back (evaluate) and start over again.

Results for Sale
Posted by: TJ Tokariuk on 11/12/2010 6:02:56 PM

There is a general misunderstanding about what you are buying when you hire a consultant. The first thing that you should know is that you are not buying a product or a service, you are buying a result. We as consultants are not providing you with a service but access to our knowledge to help you achieve that result.
