The Grunt Fund Calculator

Posted by on Sep 28, 2012 in A La Mode | 15 comments

To help you form your very own Grunt Fund, I have created an Excel spreadsheet that calculates slices of pie based on the model in the book.

The video below provide a quick explanation on using the calculator.

    ‘Slicing Pie’ is fantastic because it is fair and makes sense and avoids the mistakes of splitting too early. I read the book last week and our team is now slicing pie using this model. Thanks a lot. Troy Westley, CEO CareMonkey.

    Thanks Mike, this is really useful. A friend in SF got us onto your book and it makes a lot of sense. Having this calculator helps bring the concept into reality really nicely. Thank you.

      Thanks Will! I’m glad you liked it. Be sure to thank your friend for me!

    Great read!

  • David Worrell

    Great book… and a cool calculator too. You should be charging $500 bucks for this! The insight alone is worth ten times that.

    Hey Mike, this is a nice idea. But why is the WE day a Wednesday?

    • Leigh Pember

      Oh wait, I see the formula is taking the start date from C3…but I thought you explained that as the start date of the Grunt, not the company. With this method each employee would have a different WE making it hard to tally weekly hours put into the project. I am sure you have a reason

    Dear Mr. Moyer i’ve read you’re free sample book but at some point i feel confused. because actually i found your theory when our business has started and the agreement has been made. but still thanks for your sharing Mr. Moyer
