Finance for Non-Financial Managers

Provided by Nelson Croom


Professionals who understand how the numbers work are at a significant advantage over those that don’t. Knowing how finance works can help employees to put decisions into a broader context, to identify the financial implications of their actions and to argue their case better for resources. This course looks at documents such as the profit statement, the balance sheet and cash flow analysis, and how they are linked. It also covers budgetary control, standard costing and discounted cash flow evaluations. These topics are set against the place of an organisation within the economy, different kinds of accountancy, and the way financial objectives are arrived at, implemented and monitored. Background information and knowledge is combined with interactive activities and scenarios so that learning can be applied in the workplace.
