Course Description

"Tools for Better Decision Making” is Part 3 of the Balance Sheets & Beyond three-part class series – each class a building block towards the development of a strong financial foundation, an understanding of the numbers and financial statements that drive business decisions, and strategies for using financial statements as a business management tool.  Spreadsheet tools will be provided to ensure participants learn by doing – allowing businesses to apply lessons learned from each session to their own financial situation.

Recognizing and understanding financial statements is the not the same as using the information as a tool to make decisions. This class is designed to help business owners and managers take their newfound financial understanding to the next level.  It’s for those who want to learn about the methods of using financial statements as a tool to develop business strategies as well as keep tabs on the health of their business.
