Given the amount of time that most remodelers devote to estimating jobs and entering costs, it’s surprising that so many stop short of “closing the loop” by comparing projected results with what actually happens. This session takes a look at why conducting job debriefs is so important, examines some impediments to the process, and reviews some common errors that can lead to erroneous conclusions. Finally, because so many remodelers use QuickBooks software, the session will include a brief review of those reports available in QuickBooks that can contribute to useful and actionable job debriefs.
Examine the purpose and benefits of the job debrief
Identify common impediments to accuracy
Identify data and processes required for useful conclusions
(BONUS) Demonstrate QuickBooks reports that should be part of the debrief
