I was talking with a banker friend the other day about how his bank manages people using analytics.  They produce lists of lenders periodically ranking everyone in the bank… from top to bottom.

I remember being judged by a number.  Realization rates mean everything in CPA firms.  I knew it was time to disrupt our profession.  And I remember our purposes being to make money.  Everything was centered around the bottom line.  And when the bottom line is first, customers and your staff (now called team) are second.
