Accounting is often known as the “language of business” and accounting literacy is the key for developing business acumen. It is imperative for all managers and business owners to understand key financial principles and apply them in the real-world context.
Understanding accounting is an essential building block for a solid understanding of business. Therefore, it is a precursor to mastering the numbers game in business. This skill will enable all managerial level employees of each department to make better and more informed business decisions.
The ability to use numbers to the best advantage for business begins with the ability to read Financial Statements and to tell a business story from the numbers reflected in the Financial Statements. These skills are essentially required by non-finance professionals to manage their respective areas to become effective, all-rounded, and professional managers.
This 2-day finance for the non-finance program will demonstrate that learning accounting is a lot easier by using real-life case studies and it is designed using layman terms and language to facilitate a better understanding of the key principles and concepts. Participants will learn how to interpret and communicate financial situations and events from the Financial Statements and make better business decisions. Take away this core competency for developing the necessary business acumen within you.
On successful completion of this Finance for non Finance workshop, the participants are expected to be able to:
Acquire sound understanding on accounting and financial principles and their applications in the business
Achieve clear understanding on 5 elements of accounts and its structure in making up the financial statements.
Learn how to read, interpret and analyze financial statements and tell a business
story from them.
