“If you pay for service by the hour, you buy hours and not service”

Some employers pay for a completed job, but others pay by the hour. “When you buy software development by the hour, what are you buying?  Hours” was posted on Twitter by Brad Murphy on January 24, 2012.

“I say when you pay for service by the hour, you buy hours, not service, and certainly not value” was posted on Twitter by Jeffrey Carr on December 20, 2013. “@tcorcoran because when you buy service by the hour, you buy hours not service- & it’s a buyer’s, not seller’s gig” was posted on Twitter by Jeffrey Carr on July 10, 2014. “Customer POV: when you buy service by the hour, you buy hours, not service” was posted on Twitter by Jeffrey Carr on January 28, 2018.

Jeff Carr was featured on the Legal Rebels Podcast of the ABA (American Bar Association) on March 13, 2019, where he again said, “There’s an old saying that if you pay for service by the hour, you buy hours and not service.” Carr’s philosophy is that if you pay a law firm by billable hours, you’re buying lots of billable hours.

Love this podcast.  Are you a lawyer, accountant, architect, engineer… any knowledge worker stuck selling services by the hour?  Listen to these guys and open your eyes and your mind to getting away from the #billablehour tyranny. https://twitter.com/ronaldbaker/status/956897098565410816

Not content with retirement, Jeff Carr continues the fight against billable hours
March 13, 2019, 6:00 am CDT
By Jason Tashea
When Jeff Carr first retired in 2014, he reflected back on being an associate at Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft in the 1970s. At the time when he started his career, he “immediately realized that there was a disconnect between the interests of the firm and the customer.”

Since then, he has been on a 40-year path of improving lawyer efficiency and effectiveness.

“There’s an old saying that if you pay for service by the hour, you buy hours and not service,” he says. “And I still believe that very much.”
