The business world today has never been more turbulent and uncertain and the ultimate measure of decision making in any context is and will be financially inclined. Consequently in the new challenging business environment it is imperative that managers and professionals responsible for management and leadership of the companies, subsidiaries and divisions should be able to understand financial jargon, use and understand the financial information to engage in financial discussions and take ownership for management and control of their respective organisations. A sound understanding of finance will enable them to interact with its key stakeholders both internally and externally with confidence and contribute significantly to not only the sustainability of the company but the strong development of the company in the recovery phase.

This workshop is designed for non-financial professionals who have reached positions of responsibility and need to enhance their knowledge of finance and financial analysis to be able to see the “integrated picture” in a turbulent business environment or professionals who believe that they need to enhance business finance to reach the next level in the organisations. The program further enhances the participants’ critical thinking and appreciation of financial statements and the strategic direction of the company.

The emphasis throughout is on developing financial skills from a strategic perspective to add strategic and stakeholder value to businesses and the use of finance and control information for the effective management of resources. The program uses a wide variety of participative methods to help professionals understand company balance sheet, income statements, cash flow statements and statements of changes in equity and cost and capital budgeting concepts amongst others so as to add value to the effective leadership and management of organisation.
