This is the only time that is helpful to really teach the bolded concepts. You don’t need to read every word of every section but make sure you explain the concepts of each section and follow the activities. It is important to use the case studies. If you follow the case studies verbatim and have the cohort answer the questions, we guarantee there will be some “aha” moments even if you are working with business owners with a little bit of experience.

To best facilitate the case studies, make sure you spend time preparing. As a facilitator you must know where every number comes from, so make notes in the sidebar. Many of the calculations in Session 8 are carried over from the costing exercises completed in the Session 7 case studies. As you move through the case studies with the cohort, challenge them to know where the numbers come from. Share with them the page number so they can go back and review on their own with confidence.
