The Finance for Non-Finance Manager course empowers managers to more effectively communicate with accounts and finance people and to understand the financial aspects of business decisions. Many operating managers have had limited exposure to financial data, are somewhat afraid of accounting statements and need to know more about this important business function. The course aims at “lifting the veil”.
OUTCOMES OF THE PROGRAM
Participants will improve their understanding of the financial ramifications of their decisions – whether these relate to: an impact on the income statement, balance sheet or cash flow statement; budgeting more effectively; understanding what causes and drives costs; revealing key ratios and performance measures; or comprehending the principles of value creation from an economic perspective. Generally the programme provides managers with a practical understanding of finance, accounting and investment decision-making.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
- Managers in non-financial positions.
- Managers in financial positions who wish to sharpen their skills, particularly on financial controls.
