In many organizations, operationally responsible managers have been made accountable for the financial performance of their divisions. This means that these managers need to have a firm grip on using a wide range of financial reports and information - making understanding finance, accounts and budgets extremely important for them. In the webinar, the speaker will aim to make non-financial managers comfortable will using the information provided by their accounting departments to make the correct management decisions.
This course will ensure that they fully understand both the reports and what these are saying about their divisions underlying financial performance.
The modern manager needs to understand the financial implications of their day to day decisions and the impact they have on the business. It is also important that managers have a solid grasp of basic financial awareness in order to agree and manage budgets effectively and appreciate core finance principles.

They will learn how to translate financial reports, write and understand budgets and use the information to help improve their success as a manager. If you're looking to grow your career and take on greater responsibility within your organization, you'll need to demonstrate a basic understanding of financial management—even if you're not in a financial role.
