Are you a manager (or a would-be manager) who is baffled by balance sheets or confused by cash flow statements?
We're not all financial wizards, but it's not just accountants that have to deal with numbers in their everyday business. As a manager, whether you like it or not, you're going to have to spend some time on spreadsheets and have some sort of financial reconciliation as part of your job duties. Understanding those numbers, and using them to make key changes, is often vital to an organisation's success.
You don't need a degree in accounting to learn the in's and out's of your company's finances. You only need a foundation and understanding of the essentials.
