We are actually going to go AFK next week and host a real live workshop for real live businesses in Melbourne! Here are some details:
Lean Accounting – what it is and how to do it
Do you know why it’s such a chore to keep your accounts up to date?
Accounting principles and methods used by almost all modern businesses were actually designed to support mass production, in the early 1900’s. Reports were developed to present an accurate view of a company to outsiders – they were never designed to help managers run their business.
New Lean accounting systems can effectively replace “traditional” accounting methods like standard/activity-based costing, variance reporting, cost-plus pricing, complex transactional control systems, and confusing financial reports with direct costing, simple recording and control systems, and simple summary reports that are presented in “plain English” and everyone can understand.
This is no different than applying Lean methods to any other process – the objective is to eliminate waste, free up capacity, speed up the process, eliminate errors & defects, and make the process clear and understandable.
Hosted and delivered by Michael Mehmet (Director and Founder at eLEDGER) it should be an informative night for startups and businesses struggling to stay on top of their accounts.
Date: Thu 24th July 2014
Time: 5:45 – 7:15pm
Place: The Village at NAB, 700 Bourke St Melbourne
If you are based in Melbourne and you own or manage a small business, chances are your books are actually more complicated than they need to be. If you can make it, come along and find out more – especially if you’ve never been to The Village before, which is quite an interesting experiment by NAB in supporting the local startup community.
