Course Outline

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU LOOKED CRITICALLY AT YOUR WORKFLOW MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS AND PROCESSES?

An accounting or advisory firm can always benefit from improved workflows and processes. But to improve workflow management, it’s imperative to examine the base processes that make up the workflow.

Usually, these processes have been randomly and unevenly applied throughout the years, meeting needs as they happen. In most cases, a business practice may have come about due to convenience in the moment rather than a formal attempt to improve the accuracy and efficiency of work over time.

This course challenges the way your firm currently manages its workflow. It looks at clients, people, systems, processes and technology to provide a framework for workflow management in the 21st Century.

We’ll encourage you to step outside your comfort zone and put in places actions to make workflow production in your firm more efficient, accurate and reliable.

WHO SHOULD ENROL IN THIS COURSE?

Both new and experienced workflow and practice managers will benefit from the opportunity to critically review their firm’s approach to workflow management.

This course is also suitable for principals, directors, partners and managers involved in the management of workflow in your firm.
