Major Topics

Times listed are Mountain Time Zone

Week 1: CFO Series: Accounting for Lean: Staying in Step with Lean

CPE: 2

Field of Study: Accounting

Discussion Leader: Rob Angell, MS, CPA or Don Minges, MBA

Date: Friday, February 3, 9 am

Description: The plodding accounting conventions of yesterday can inhibit the quickly adapting operations of today. As business processes become faster, scheduling, inventory management, and data collection must change to reflect your organization’s new reality. This session will help you adapt your accounting methods as the world is changing around you.

Week 2: CFO Series: Strategy & Implementation, Prepare For Success

CPE: 2

Field of Study: Business Management & Organization

Discussion Leader: Brian Maturi, MBA, FCA

Date: Friday, February 10, 9 am

Description: Does your business have an effective strategy? If you do – how well has it been implemented? This seminar will focus on developing an effective strategy but more importantly on effectively implementing the strategy so that everyone in the organization, from top to bottom, is aligned and working towards its overall success. Organizations that succeed are not accidents, they are not lucky. Every successful organization plans well and executes their strategic plan effectively. Come and learn how.

Week 3: CFO Series: Detecting Internal Fraud – The Devil You Know

CPE: 2

Field of Study: Auditing

Discussion Leader: Tracy Cooper, CPA

Date: Friday, February 17, 9 am

Description: Two-thirds of small businesses will experience some form of employee fraud according to the Better Business Bureau. About 30% of business failures result from employee fraud. Current estimates indicate businesses lose 5% of their revenues to occupational fraud, and small businesses incur higher median losses when fraud occurs. Many businesses don’t have adequate controls in place to prevent and detect fraud, often because of time, staff, or financial constraints. This session will discuss common frauds and fraudsters, and how to identify realistic ways for businesses to take steps to prevent becoming the next victim.

Week 4: CFO Series: Accomplishment Follows Failures-Experiment More!

CPE: 2

Field of Study: Business Management & Organization

Discussion Leader: Don Minges, MBA

Date: Friday, February 24, 9 am

Description: Every success is the result of numerous experiments that failed. Every scientific advance was preceded by failures. To be direct, failures lead to success. Every failure is temporary, merely an opportunity to improve. We will review why failures are feared. Successful organizations continuously experiment, e.g., QVC, so they can learn and stay ahead of the competition. Recall the maxim – if you keep doing what do have always done, then you always get what you always got. We will demonstrate the advantages of embracing experiments as a method to improve the organization and fuel growth.
