“You won’t be in control of your business until you can accurately predict it.” One of my early mentors and business advisors must have said that a thousand times over our time together—and it’s true. Running a web studio is hard. But you can either run your business or your business can run you—and I have always hated having a boss.
During this workshop we will cover how we run our studio (from planning for projects, cash flow, hiring, and sales) that centers around forecasting. I’ll share a relatively simple weekly cadence you can implement that doesn’t lose sight of the people. We will dig into the details and discuss the important metrics to track and what is just noise. Before long you’ll actually be in charge of your business.
During this workshop, we will cover:
-What is Operations?
-The difference between operations and project management
-Where to start with forecasting
-Improving forecasting through feedback loops
-Predicting and Managing cash flow
-Setting a process for your own peace of mind
