THE PERFORMANCE PENTAGON
AND ADVISORY SERVICES
Successful management of assurance and
advisory (A&A) services practices require a firm
to meticulously track and measure profitability
factors. The factors that contribute to profitability:
productivity, realization, leverage, overhead, and
compensation can be observed as interior angles
of a pentagon—the center being profit per partner.
The performance pentagon is a framework that
graphically represents the profitability factors
and is used to supplement monthly financial
statements and budgets to actual comparisons.
In addition, it allows the firm to juxtapose the
current relationships between the factors and the
partners’ profitability, says Dick Savich, President
and Founder of ABKO Consulting.
