Keeping track of all billable work and getting paid in a reasonable timeframe is key to your survival. This makes realisation rates; the amount of work compared to how earnings are realised, one of the most important metrics your firm can track.

The problem with the price oriented or directed approach to yield is that it is uni-dimensional. It only considers the price aspect of revenues which clearly are achieved through a constantly see-sawing bookkeeping for startups battle for balance in price as well as volume.
