About this Event

Wednesday, June 28 & Thursday, June 29, 2023
3-5 PM (EDT), 12-2 PM (PDT)

This four-hour concentrated course will provide an advanced view of the work-in-progress (WIP) schedule. More than a reporting tool, the WIP is a financial management tool for a construction company. This course is intended to help attendees learn strategies to turn unexpected profit fade and enhancements into predictable events.

After completing this course, attendees will be able to:

  • Understand that the WIP is a dynamic tool which facilitates historical reporting and projections
  • Evaluate strategies for allocating costs to contracts
  • Explore issues relating to revenue recognition on contracts
  • Discuss change orders and variable consideration with a focus on impacts to gross profit and revenue recognition
  • Describe the role of the formal project cost review process in the  outcome of the WIP
  • Discuss WIP analysis techniques, tips, and tricks
  • Explain the impacts of profit fade and gain over time to internal and external users of the WIP schedule
