Musings from the CU Suite

Goals, Tracking, Variances and my Trusty Whiteboard

Written by Anthony Demangone, Powered by NAFCU

The budget process is well underway in NAFCU.  And I love it!

My colleagues spend a lot of time and effort in putting together a detailed budget. 

But perhaps what I like most is that budget season triggers the updating of my trusty whiteboard. 

I track 19 things on that whiteboard that we need to achieve in 2019.  It hangs on a wall by my office door. I can't leave the office without seeing it.  If those 19 things go well, NAFCU goes well. 

Remember Pearson's Law:  That which is measured improves. That which is measured and reported improves exponentially.
