A key driver of a company's success or failure is often financial management. When managers, supervisors, business owners and even team members fail to understand the financial status of their organizations or departments, disaster can result.
Would an improved working knowledge of financial statements benefit you? Does the fear of financial statements have you unsure of the decisions you're required to make? You are not alone. Every day business professionals and managers are given financial data to analyze, interpret and use for decision making. And, every day, there are professionals who don't want to admit that they don't fully understand how to analyze, read and interpret the information.
Ask yourself these questions:
- Have you been handed a financial statement to use in decision making, only to find yourself confused by the numbers?
- Do your eyes glaze over when you're given a financial statement that you're expected to analyze and understand?
- Are you required to put together financial documentation, but you don't know where to start?
- Does it make you nervous to know your boss expects you to use financial information in your decision-making process?
- Do you have staff members who would benefit by having a basic understanding of how to read financial statements?
