The accountant’s hidden cost: how to tackle scope creep

Mark Wickersham FCA
 

It happens when a project’s parameters change, resulting in additional, unplanned work you never budgeted for. Usually, the end result is write-offs and completing work for free.

Scope creep may be invisible, but it is one of the biggest—and most expensive—pain points for accountants.

In this video with best-selling author, Mark Wickersham FCA, you will discover:

  • Why scope creep is a pricing issue first, and a project management issue second

  • The four different forms of scope creep

  • How to build your awareness around scope creep

  • How to create clarity of scope with your clients

  • Why we do so many things for free, and how to make money from things we used to give away (for a typical accounting firm this can add five figures to your profit every year)
