Are we so busy managing our business and leading our staff, that we don’t have time to wade through the financials, discover the trends, draw proper conclusions and take appropriate action?

Topic Background:

Since the beginning of commerce, businesses have struggled to manage and grow with discipline. One of the core principles is an understanding of the numbers. “How did the company do last year and compared to the prior year?” “How much cash is available to finance growth?” “Does the company need to raise more capital and what if they change their debt or equity positions?” “How profitable is a certain product line or distribution channel?” “How do we determine when our investment is no longer providing an adequate return on our investment?” These are very important questions which require a strong understanding of the numbers.
