Description

GET THE RESULTS YOU WANT IN FINANCE. FAST.

Whatever your main functional role as a manager, if you ignore the financial side of your job, you will start to lose control and you won’t deliver the business results you need to get ahead. On the other hand, if you can read and understand financial accounts and management accounts – and if you know the difference between them – you will be far better placed to make the right decisions. When you can combine your functional skills with a clear knowledge of the financial consequences of your decisions, you will be well on the way to success as a manager. Fast Track to Success: Finance gives you the knowledge you need and shows you how to use it to best effect.

This practical, career-oriented book gets you up to speed on finance quickly. It demystifies finance and talks you through everything you need to know about financial measures of business performance. It gives you:

  • Finance in a nutshell - a series of frequently-asked-questions to give you a concise overview of the subject
  • The top 10 tools and techniques you can use to help you develop your approach to finance
  • Simple checklists to help you identify the strengths and weaknesses of your capabilities and those of your team
  • Advice on leading your team – how to decide your leadership style and build your team
