Projection Inspection: Distinguishing fact from fiction when working with management

BVWireIssue #75-1
December 3, 2008

If you missed our popular one-day workshop on management projections held last August in Lake Tahoe, be sure to check out this week’s teleconference The Uses and Abuses of Management Projections, featuring Grant Thornton’s Neil Beaton, CPA/ABV, CFA, ASA and Stuart Weiss, CPA/ABV. The session includes recorded highlights from the Tahoe workshop – plus Beaton will walk through a case study (spreadsheet will be provided to registrants in advance) live on the call. The case study is aimed at helping attendees identify and avoid the pitfalls associated with projections. Names will be changed to protect the innocent, but the case exemplifies the uncertainty inherent in management projections – as in recent economic events. Attendees will pick up key insights and will have the chance to interact directly with Neil during Q&A at the end. But there is an added benefit: Registrants can choose to utilize an optional webinar platform. Do not miss this unique session taking place this Thursday at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET; register here.
