Finance For Non-Finance Executives (Basic)


Finance impacts on all segments of an organization.  It acquires funds, allocates resources, and tracks performance.  In a profit-oriented company, the financial statements form the basis for the shareholder’s assessment of management’s record. In a non-profit-oriented organization, analysis may constrain management from meeting all the desires of its constituents.  In either case it becomes a focal point for managerial attention, decision making, and accountability. Methods utilized by finance in performing these functions are important and relevant to executives who do not hold a financial function in multi-business environment.

 Without this financial knowledge and intelligence, much value is lost while managing the resources and often handicaps the organization from realizing its vision.
