Back Cover

Financial measures are critical for business success and if you’re a manager, for your career. That may scare some people. But here’s the good news: there is a relatively small number of essential management ratios with which you can measure any aspect of business performance you need to. If you can master these, you will have a firm grip of business finance and need never be put off by the numbers again.

Key Management Ratios cuts straight to the measures that matter. It shows you what they are and explains exactly how they show just what’s going on in your company. Its clarity of explanation and unique visual presentation will help you quickly understand everything you need to know about business ratios.

THE CLEAREST GUIDE TO THE CRITICAL NUMBERS THAT DRIVE YOUR BUSINESS
