Unless there is a specific goal, one usually expressed in a number, there can be no goal. It’s been said that unless something can be measured, it has no value. Yet, when talking about creating a financial plan or a budget or, sometimes, even a strategic plan, there frequently comes a glaze over lawyers’ eyes. “That’s something for someone else to do, not me.” Yet, it’s this financial component that let’s us know whether we’re successful. How else could we tell? By the amount of money in our bank account? Yes, but how do we know whether that amount shouldn’t or couldn’t have been more? What is our benchmark? What let’s us know how we are performing financially against our previous years, our compatriots in the legal community and, yes, against our own plan/thoughts of what we wanted to achieve in this period?

This session will describe some of the more commonly accepted benchmarks that are used to measure performance.

• Important metrics

• How to create a financial plan, easily

• When to monitor one’s progress

• How to modify the plan when new information becomes apparent
