This course reveals, as no other, the immutable financial truths that successful companies follow
This In-house programme covers the wider organisational issues such as company performance, strategy as revealed by the figures, the importance of appraising expenditure – all through a complete understanding of corporate financial reports, decision making models etc.
This session addresses the task of defining financial strategy and in the process clarifying usage of the many terms associated with “strategy” and “strategic”
It is when we hear the word strategy that we run in to a range of meanings, quite incorrect usage, vagueness and misunderstanding. At the outset we need to be clear as to what the words “financial” and “strategy” really mean; what is meant by the individual words and therefore the term Financial Strategy
What do strategies both operating and structural aim to achieve? Answering these questions reveals the truth that finance is intimately interlinked with all business strategies
Strategically why is anyone in business? Successful and long-lived (sustained) companies understand the reasons. When directors (maybe under the influence of their short-termist shareholders) lose sight of why they are in business then egos, indolence or incompetence lead to value if not company destruction
