Financial Management For Non-Financial Managers

Intertwine with financial figures

A healthy organisation needs a management team that understands finance. This is non-negotiable. In today’s competitive global environment, a minimum of financial knowledge is highly recognised and appreciated by every company, as this simply enables you to make better business decisions.

You would like to have an overview of, and impact on, the happenings in your organisation at a higher level? In that case, you need to know how to deduce interesting information from an annual report, how to draw up a financial report, and how to establish budgets and interpret key financial figures in the blink of an eye.

Your goal is to improve your communication with financial managers and to ask the right questions. You want to go beyond financial figures to demonstrate the performance of your business unit. Do these aims hit the spot? Discover the detailed programme here.
