Training Course Overview

Financial information provides an essential basis for all business managers to undertake their roles effectively and confidently. Financial information originates from the organization’s accounting system, and represents a comprehensive view of events that have already occurred, but it also provides an ideal database for forecasting future events, for preparing budgets, for setting targets, and maintaining control of operations. It can also be used to measure comparative performance and profitability. This Anderson training course is designed to provide managers with the skills to understand, interpret, and utilize financial information, and to apply this in planning, controlling, and making decisions which are informed, logical, and which add value to their organization.
