Course Description

Many firms focus on their staff’s utilization rate and concentrate every working moment toward a client’s project. While this seems to make sense, the actual path towards greater profitability has very little to do with this simple metric.

An analogy would be your physical health. While it’s fine to take yourself to the gym every day, this alone will not create an optimally healthy body. There are many factors that contribute to a healthy system and neglecting any of them impairs the overall objective.

This webinar will look into all the influences that affect your firm’s profitability.
