The Relevant Level Of Detail

January 22, 2009

In many places on this blog, I have stated that as a small to medium business owner or manager, you must ensure that your IT staff or supplier is part of the conversation.

That you must be in regular communication on both the issues, and the successes.

This does not mean that you need to be a complete ‘techie’

This means that you need to dig into the relevant level of detail.

You don’t need to be a chartered accountant to run your business. That is why you hire or use one.

But even with your CA, you still need the relevent level of detail.
