We learned some important things about ourselves and our businesses as a result of the Covid-19 lockdowns. Most of the time, we were resilient and agile enough to handle the extreme level of disruption and stress we faced with some degree of efficiency and innovation. And while we thought this was an event, it has become an evolution.

Stratagem is not about creating a strategic planning document. It's an all-embracing, dynamic process and not a rigid form.

Practice management used to be a relatively simple process. Today, the world of accounting has changed so much that the old view of CPAs relaxing after the dreaded April 15 deadline is no longer accurate.

Tax, audit and consulting engagements keep most firms busy 12 months a year, and best practices for running a firm has morphed into best practices for managing chaos.
