Pre-Series Session: “What is Good Data?”

January 6, 2021 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

| Free

Presented by Julia Shanks

Pre-Series Session part I: Wednesday, January 6th 1:30-3:00pm
Pre-Series Session part II: Friday, January 8th 1:30-3:00pm

This workshop is a pre-series session for the main workshop series “Making Sound Decisions with Good Data and Practical Framework”. It is open to all regardless of attending the main series.  We strongly encourage anyone who is new to financial recordkeeping and analysis or want to refresh their knowledge to attend this session ahead of attending the main series with CISA. 

You’ve heard the expression “Garbage in, garbage out.” You know this in your farm business. If you use low quality seed and soil, you’ll have low quality crops. The same is true with recordkeeping. If you put garbage into your bookkeeping system, that’s what you’ll get out. But if you take time and care with your recordkeeping, then you will have the data you need to make important decisions about your business.

In this workshop, we’ll talk about “good data” – all the things you need to take into consideration as you get ready to analyze your business and make decisions for growth. We will cover:

  1. Different types of recordkeeping systems
  2. How to organize your financial transactions so you can get the information you need to make decisions
  3. A framework to think about numbers as you get ready to do seasonal planning.

REGISTER HERE for this pre-series as well as the Farm Decision-Making Workshop Series.
