Is the Household Model affordable? 
This question has been asked since the inception of households . . .


Each organization has its own unique variables – market demand, financial position, physical plant configuration, and operational objectives.  This workshop is designed to teach the leaders of organizations how to navigate and interpret their unique variables to assess the affordability of the Household Model.  Armed with this knowledge, leaders can strategically sequence the critical pathways to transformation and will have the baseline information needed to sell the Household Model to their Boards. 


During the highly interactive workshop, attendees will participate in assessing various case studies and learn how to:
• Assess an existing building’s layout; determine retrofit potential
• Calculate rough estimate of upfront capital costs for retrofit or new construction
• Analyze organization’s existing financial health and capacity
• Fund upfront capital costs with mix of debt, equity, fundraising
• Assess impact of transformation on revenues and expenses to determine whether improvements can service the debt over time.
