Seminar Details
Learn how the overall growth strategy and culture of a firm is reflected in its financial strategy.  In this course we present an integrative framework of value creation that will enable you to see the role of finance as a strategic partner in the business overall and not just a steward of corporate resources. You’ll learn how financial executives use financial tools to direct the focus of the firm, fund the tools needed, provide incentives for performance, and measure the effectiveness of management and resource allocation. When you think like the finance team, you’ll have a better grasp of strategy, management, culture shaping and incentives in your everyday work.

  • Linking an organization’s growth strategy and its financial strategy
