Description

The goal of this course is to give you a sound understanding of the 3 core financial statements and the "story" they tell.

This course will cover:

  • The Income Statement
  • The Balance Sheet
  • The Statement of Cash Flows

Whether you are currently working for a company, own a company, or looking to start a company, having a working knowledge of the financial statements gives you an edge that many people lack. I am not interested in turning you into an accounting genius, but I am very interested in building your business confidence.

This course is an excerpt taken from the full-length course, Seeing the Big Picture: Business and Financial Acumen Training. In this course you will find reference to the 5 Drivers business model, which isn't covered here, but in the full-length course.

Who is the target audience?
  • Business Professionals - Looking to Advance Your Career
  • Entrepreneurs & Small Business Owners - Looking to Grow Your Company
  • Job Seekers - Looking to Build Your Credibility

Bestselling Author and CEO of Acumen Learning

Kevin Cope is a successful executive and author of the #1 Wall Street Journal and New York Times bestseller, Seeing the Big Picture. For over twenty-five years, Kevin has promoted the idea that the brightest minds in business understand the essence of how a company makes money, and they use this knowledge to drive their decisions. In other words, they have business acumen.

Recognizing that business acumen is not only essential, but also lacking in many organizations, Kevin founded Acumen Learning in 2002, a training company that has gone on to teach Kevin’s Five Drivers business model to some of the world’s most respected and profitable companies, including 17 of the Fortune 50.

Kevin Cope teaches employees, leaders, and business owners how to speak the language of business as fluently as they speak the language of their department or function. Kevin believes that business people who exercise their business acumen execute smarter, faster, and make more profitable business decisions.
