Behind every successful and profitable company is a clear understanding of how and where their time is being spent. It’s safe to say time is the heartbeat of what you do, and what we do at Teamwork.com. In 2019, the European Union (EU) introduced a directive requiring all employers within EU member states to implement time tracking systems for their employees. While full implementation of the directive is up to individual member states, we can definitely get on board with mandated time tracking!

In today’s fast-paced world, achieving a healthy work-life balance is more important than ever. When work consistently encroaches on personal time, it can take its toll on employees’ physical and mental health–not to mention its impact on business performance. A big part of achieving this balance is making sure people have enough time for leisure without having to work long hours.

As Greek philosopher Heraclitus once said, "Everything changes and nothing remains still, and you cannot step twice into the same stream." Ironically, change is the only constant — not only in life in general, but also in IT processes. IT teams may need to upgrade their hardware, migrate from on-premise services to the cloud, implement a new security patch, or deal with server breakdowns. How do you handle these changes to ensure minimal to no disruptions to service quality?

As an engineer, you’ve had to master the art of thinking big — and solving small. Engineers have to understand the big picture and see where the ship needs to go. But they also need to build the microscopic parts and pieces of that ship — sometimes while it’s already on the water! It isn’t easy to think big and solve small, but project management software can help you keep both sides of the engineering coin in sharp focus.

As a professional in architecture, do you ever feel like you’re spending so much time managing business operations that you don’t have enough time to, you know, architect? It’s frustrating — and frustratingly common. You’re juggling multiple clients and projects (not to mention internal team members and external stakeholders), and someone has to keep everybody focused on the right tasks at the right time.

As the saying goes, the best things come in threes. Turns out Teamwork.com couldn't agree more and we’re thrilled to now offer three different budget types: Time and materials, Retainer … and Fixed fee! Perfect for teams that complete project-based work on a set-fee, our new Fixed fee budget offers financial stability, profit margin tracking, and revenue transparency.

Today, we’re excited to roll out a brand new look and feel to the Planning Overview. It’s the same report you know and love, only we’ve given it a glow-up and boosted functionality to help you report on resourcing data alongside time, capacity, and staffing information. Before we jump in, let’s remind ourselves of why we would use the Planning Overview?

If IT is the lifeblood of your business — and it is — then IT projects play a vital role in keeping your organization healthy and thriving. These projects can range from small localized projects (first aid) to systemwide enhancements (blood transfusions) to complete digital transformations (something akin to a heart and brain transplant all in one!). IT projects can be proactive or reactive, small or large, quick or years-long.

What’s your gut reaction when you find out about a significant new technology that is likely coming to your business? For some, this news generates excitement as they see the boundless possibilities. Others might feel frustration as they remember the difficulties of the last major upgrade or fear the business disruption that could be headed their way. Both of these responses (and anything in between) are legit.

Do you feel like something’s not working in your agency? You’ve got processes that are outdated (or just plain not documented). You’ve got tools that aren’t the right fit or you’re not getting enough out of. Even though you feel the need for change, it terrifies you. If so, you’re not alone, I was at an agency-focused conference in Denver just a few weeks back, and several agency owners I spoke with said that they knew they needed to make a change with a major software platform that helps run their agency, but they were scared to make the switch.

Agency clients I talk to often want more strategic consulting from the agencies they hire. At the same time, many agencies feel like the services they’re delivering are often undervalued by the clients they serve. If both of these are true, then why are so many agencies caught in what Pete Caputa calls the “Tactician’s Trap” where it feels like you’re on an endless hamster wheel selling implementation services without being valued for the strategic insights you can provide to your clients.

38% of agencies struggle with frequently overservicing clients. Of the 500+ agencies surveyed for the 2023 State of Agency Operations Report, 44% also said that client demands have become tougher to meet. Are you finding clients more demanding? Is overservicing happening more frequently in your agency? If so, 2024 can be different on both fronts.

What got you here won’t get you there. You’ve probably heard that phrase before. And it probably couldn’t feel more applicable than it does right now as we round out 2023. So, the question is: Are you going to keep doing more of the same? Or do something different in 2024? If you’re in that latter camp, then you’re going to get some encouragement (and hopefully some useful ideas to implement) from today’s guests, Pete Caputa and Karl Sakas.

He went from working 70-80 hour weeks to building a 7-figure agency with 50% profit margins while only working about 1 hour per week. Today he’s the founder of GrowthDaily.com & AgencyReviews.io & he’s known by his 45,000 followers on X as @MarketingMax, but several years ago he was an agency co-owner struggling to make the sort of money he wanted to make (and enjoy the work in the process). That’s when a timely LinkedIn post came across his feed & recommend a book that change the course of his agency–and his life–forever.

You probably heard recently on this show, from the dozens of agency owners & leaders we spoke to at INBOUND last year, that the number one place they'd invest extra budget dollars (if they magically had them tomorrow) was in marketing their own agency. This begs 2 questions: 1) Why is this such a common answer? 2) What can you as an agency owner start doing to address this common need? (because an extra $10,000/mo isn't likely showing up in your mailbox tomorrow)

Many peers & consultants have said she's crazy for committing to this pricing model as a software development agency, but Amanda Moriuchi, CEO of AppIt Ventures, says the only crazy thing is to think any structure for your agency will be challenge free. Amanda & her team have made a name for themselves in Colorado & beyond, not only for doing great app development work for their clients, but also by committing to a pricing & delivery model of Fixed Bid project pricing when most other agencies of their type are consistently sticking with a Time & Materials approach.
