Finance for Non-Financial Directors

As a director it is important that you understand the financial impact on the business of your decisions.  Do you feel confident that you understand the true picture represented by your statutory accounts, bearing in mind this is your responsibility as well as that of the Finance Director?!  Are you able to ask the necessary questions relating to finance to work through to your desired outcome?

All directors need to understand the fundamentals of finance to lead their organisations in a strategically effective manner.
