Finance: Understanding the Basics

Finance: Understanding the Basics

Entry level and middle-management sales and operations executives often lack an appreciation of the financial dynamics of the firm. Such understanding allows a "big picture" approach to one's everyday job and provides an appreciation of how their work relates to the future of the company.

To help employees such insight, Wolf Management Consultants has created a one-day seminar/workshop that presents the basics of finance. Participants will:

  • Gain an understanding of the basic financial statements such as the income statement, the balance sheet and the cash flow statement so they will understand how their performance impacts company's success. Seminar participant will see what goes into each statement and learn how to construct such statements.
  • Develop an understanding of the basics of risk and the fundamentals of financial analysis such as ratio analysis.
  • Learn to construct sales projections, production and budgets
  • Obtain knowledge about the time value of money and understand the basics of present value.

This day-long immersion into the basics of finance will enable employees to work smarter and be more productive by gaining an appreciation of what goes into the "bottom line."
