Do you ask yourself?

  • Why is our job efficiency so poor?
  • Why is my overtime through the roof?
  • Why can’t we hit our hours budgets?
  • Why am I not hitting my gross margin goals?

Maybe you should be asking?

  • How much non-billable time is occurring (burning) in your company?
  • Are your operations running as efficiently as possible?
  • Can efficiency be improved and result in improved profits?

Non-billable hours can run 10 to 20% of your labor cost, burning $1,000s.
