successful performance


This book is definitely the "contractor's guide" to successful project delivery. It includes succinct descriptions of some of the most commonly used, but maybe not well understood, financial tools and systems. The book concludes with specific examples and recommendations on how contractors can respond to RFPs, and how suppliers can measure their performance

most useful

I recommend this book to every Contractor trying to manage in troubled economic times. The author's lifetime hands-on construction experience keeps this book real and more useful than most academic tomes.

Poor book, I wonder if all these 5 stars are fake!

Poor book.
Nothing really to learn.
Just rambling.

I'm recommending this.

We have an accountant who manages my husband’s business, but I was curious of her work so I decided to explore. This one is the perfect one to start as it is specific and thorough. I’m recommending this.

Helping me to succeed.

As a beginning entrepreneur, books like this helped me to succeed, slowly. Greg Shields didn’t fail to include every significant detail like how to budget and cost management, which are some of the aspects I am very poor in. thanks a lot!

well-done

This is a long listening book but I don’t really much care as it is effective and substantial. Any reader can easily relate to this book even without prior knowledge because of the simplicity and the flow of the discussion is well-organized.

Functional!

Functional! And because decision-making is more of a scientific process rather than a guess, management accounting will be a big help for my company. With management accounting, we can come up with rational financial decisions that contribute to the betterment of a business.

Nice, Concise Reference

Very helpful for refreshing your memory about some of the basic concept when you haven't done accounting for a while. I recommend this book especially to students who are struggling in accounting classes or to business owners who want to be able to create simple financial statements.
