Seminar Details
Develop a greater intuition for the budgeting aspect of finance in your firm so that you can win support for your most important initiatives. This course provides a crucial bridge between you and the rest of your organization with respect to finance-related issues. We’ll learn and apply the analytical tools corporations commonly use to make strategic resource allocation decisions. You’ll get a better sense of how the finance team looks at investments and decides where to allocate resources, and you’ll be better equipped to make a case for the initiatives you believe will create the most value for your organization. After all, in today’s competitive marketplace, companies that use resources wisely have a huge advantage over those that do not.
