The Ordeal

“The only way you motivate people and change them is one-on-one. Everything else is window dressing.” – David Maister

This is the time of year when CPA firm compensation committees meet and determine “the year-end split.”

You know what I am talking about. Some call it the Compensation Committee Process. I call it An Ordeal!

Here is a post I did several years ago on this topic – The PCO (Partner Comp Ordeal).

I have several friends in the CPA firm consulting world who have some great tips about determining partner comp. They are featured in the post. I hope you find it helpful!
