Teleseminar: What You Wish You Knew About Your QTI Project

Last week I presented a FREE teleseminar to Florida businesses to help with their QTI incentive projects.  This FREE teleseminar was developed after hearing the concerns of businesses that there is no guidance for the QTI program after a project is awarded.  These businesses faced the challenge of not knowing enough to successfully track and report their QTI goals to the State.

In this 1-hour teleseminar, we covered the following:

- Four major reasons why businesses do not get their FULL scheduled payment.

-  General requirements of the QTI program. 

- Review of the 60+ page QTI agreement.  The agreement terms were broken down into simple day-to-day language that the "ordinary" person would understand. 

- Why it is important to track incentive goals each year to ensure that the company WILL meet the requirements to receive FULL payments each year.

The next teleseminar is scheduled for the month of August.  Stay tuned for more information on dates and times.

If you would like to find out more about this and other services offered by MarLynn Consulting, give us a call at (850) 727-0293.  We look forward to partnering with you on ALL of your incentive project needs.
