SCOPE Accounting & CPA Advisory Service

If you want your business to thrive, you must set clear goals and have an airtight plan for achieving them.

Imagine going on a road trip without a map or good directions. You might still make it to your destination, but with a lot of wrong turns and wasted time. Now imagine going on a road trip without the name of your destination. You stop at a gas station and say, "I want to end up somewhere sunny. Can you tell me how to get there?"

Pretty silly-and yet it's a mistake many businesses make. They don't articulate their goals well, and therefore they can't map out the steps and milestones for how to reach them.

SCOPE is a comprehensive approach to helping businesses achieve their goals.

The SCOPE methodology is a multi-perspective approach to strategic planning, performance management and process improvement initiatives. Our trained SCOPE Advisors help you begin with the end goal in mind-your desired destination-and then define milestones and measurements for every area of your business.

The result is that you set better goals and reach them faster.

  • You, as the business owner, take the whole business into account when defining your vision and goals.
  • Employees have a clear understanding of your master plan and their individual goals.
  • Everyone is tasked with measurable milestones carefully designed to provide direction and drive forward progress.
