#42 – Unbundling the Pricing Debate (& how to actually trash your timesheet)

This is a podcast of the ‘Unbundling the Pricing Debate (& how to actually trash your timesheet)’ held on 25 July 2019.

The Trashing the Timesheet debate rages for many; and is so 2018 for others.

Having clocked up (no pun intended) over 10 years without recording single chargeable unit, it is timely (again no pun intended) to share our views (there we go again) about what’s hot and not with the ongoing utility of the incumbent pricing model for profession service firms.

In this webinar we will explore what it is like to be part of a long standing timeless law firm, including how do you:

  1. know if your team members are doing anything?
  2. know if you are making any money?
  3. track your costs of production?
  4. prove your value?
  5. fix price when you have no way of knowing how long the litigation or transaction will take?
