This two-day programme will leave you feeling confident in understanding and interpreting the impact of your actions and decisions on the financial metrics which reflect business performance.
You are a manager, from any business discipline, who needs to understand financial metrics and take relevant actions to increase value creation, whether that means generating returns greater than the cost of capital, or returns that exceed the cost of an associated investment, or taking decisions which the market interprets as increasing the worth of your business.
With a mix of taught input, challenges, a real time case study and group exercises, you will uncover through robust and proven techniques the meaning of financial metrics interpreting them to manage operational performance and to create value. Relevant for business-to-business and consumer, service and manufacturing and private, not-for-profit and public sector organisations.
With a little preparation work before you arrive and a two day course with our tutors, we will equip you to understand the financial drivers of your organisation so that you will have all the commercial acumen to set an agenda to raise performance.
You will leave the Financial Drivers programme with an understanding of financial terminology and metrics, how the external market assesses the figures, confident in your ability to interpret this information and translate it in order to improve the management of operational performance to foster an increased capability to create value for the organisation.
To maximise the impact of your learning before you arrive, you will perform a real-time online analysis of a business.
