Achieving any form of balance or equilibrium within accounting can be like learning a new language: it’s far easier said than done.
It’s more like trial and error—you keep at it and try different strategies until you start to get the vocab slightly less wrong before you start to get it right.
With capacity planning—your firm’s ability to handle the demand of work from your current and prospective clients—it’s an iterative process that’s dependent on learning the nuances of your client's needs and the way your firm operates.
Capacity planning is (almost) always a constant state of guessing, adapting, and adjusting until you’ve found yourself in that perfect balance point.
But getting to that balance point has been made easier thanks to new tools and knowledge sharing that helps accountants get it right the first time. Improving your capacity is something nearly every firm is capable of doing.
