Money makes the world, and your organisation, go round. As a manager, the decisions you make will have a ripple effect on the financial performance of your organisation. Dealing with facts and figures may not be your thing, but when it comes down to it, it’s the bottom line that matters. Whether you’re financially inclined or not, as a manager, you need to have a firm grasp on financial terms and practices in order to manage your organisation optimally. This short but comprehensive course is designed to help managers understand how the decisions they make will affect the financial performance of their organisation.
You’ll unpack the jargon of finance and get a handle on a range of financial techniques you can use to improve your abilities as a manager. You’ll explore core financial pillars such as financial reporting, measuring financial performance, interpreting financial statements, cost management, cash management and budgeting – all geared towards helping you plan and control financial performance.
Many managers are experts in their own areas but haven’t really had the time to learn “Business Finance”. So CBI has put together the essentials that you need to cover, in a 3-day intensive practical programme “Business Finance for Non-Finance Managers”.
