The Monetary Value of Time

The Monetary Value of Time
Why Traditional Accounting Systems Make Customers Wait

Tuesday, May 10, 2016 – 2:30 to 7 PM
Radisson Hotel & Conference Center
East State Street & Bell School Road, Rockford

Rick Bastian, Blackhawk Bank Chairman & CEO: “I attended Joyce Warnacut’s presentation at the QRM conference and found her presentation to be eye opening and a challenge to my traditional understanding of manufacturing accounting. Now a college financial officer, she was a CFO at two manufacturing companies in Wisconsin that adopted QRM and put her methods and metrics into successful practice. It is a presentation that puts the power of QRM in perspective.”

“The Monetary Value of Time” presentation is indispensable for manufacturing CEOs, CFOs, GMs and Directors; CPAs, Business, Accounting and Finance Consultants, Advisors and Professors, and Economic Development Professionals. The framework presented will enable organizations to develop consistent measures and ensure that their cost accounting system isn’t motivating behaviors that add to lead time and make customers wait.
