Understanding Accounting

Description

COURSE OVERVIEW

This comprehensive course is designed for managers and staff who require a detailed understanding of accounting - including non-financial managers and executives, budget holders, accounts personnel and support staff working with accounts.
Managers today need to understand Finance. This involves moving beyond budgeting, and acquiring an understanding of the key concepts involved in the organization’s financial decision making.

Typical questions non-financial managers should be able to answer include:

  • What are the financial priorities we face?
  • Is this project financially viable?
  • Why is performance below or above budget?
  • What can be done to improve cash flow?
  • Why are profit margins under pressure?
  • How can the return on capital employed be increased?
  • Should we acquire this business or not?
  • What’s the relative profitability of different products and different customers?”

The topics we cover in this course (and further courses in our finance management program) will enable you to answer these questions with confidence.
