What do engineers and project managers need to know of finance? ‘Nothing – leave it to the accountants!’
No, no, no! Engineers must be conversant with the terminology and statements that accountants use. Technical expertise in projects, service delivery, production or other areas can only really be harnessed if the managers understand the accounting and reporting that drives businesses.
This course gives the necessary understanding to project, production and technical managers. It develops their skills in understanding financial and management accounting.
Accountants may not always like it but a major part of their work is to be the ‘servants of business’ and to gather, compile and present your figures. So you must understand the figures – they belong to you, your processes or projects. There are many reasons for maintaining accurate accounts. This course focuses on the strategic issues (those over-used words) – what figures reveal about the drivers of business and what they reveal about the day-to-day issues that accountants bother you with. The course will enhance your understanding of finance and of the accounting issues which affect your projects, production and technical areas of business.
