The main objective is to educate the participants to easily read and understand financial reports.

In any sport, one cannot tell if a team is winning or losing without having the ability to read and understand the scoreboard. Similarly, in business, financial reports are like scoreboard that tells if a business is making profit or not.

The reason many people find the subject finance complicated is simply because they lack the basics and have many misconceptions around it. Primarily the program answers the question – Why should I learn about business finance when we have a CFO? All misconceptions are clarified, and the basics are explained in simple terms using stories that will create a solid foundation to speak the language of business – Numbers!

One of the prime objectives of any business is to make more money than it spends. However, the challenge is – do non-finance managers know the financial position of the organisation? If not, are they making decisions based on facts or mere assumption without knowing how their decision affects the bottom-line? This program is designed to bring cost-consciousness and will make non-finance managers responsible and accountable for their decisions.
