Finance is often known as the “language of business” and financial 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 finance 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 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 compelling business story from the numbers reflected there. These skills are essentially required by non-finance professionals to manage their respective areas to become effective, all-rounded and professional managers.
