Course overview

It might not be their favorite part of the job, but every business owner, manager, and team leader needs to monitor the financial performance of their business or department. Immediate assessments can be made using Key Performance Indicators (or KPIs). A financial KPI is a measurable value that provides an insight into a business’s finances with regard to sales, expenses, profit, cash flow, or any other metric.

Making sense of financial statements and reports can seem difficult at first, but once your managers are familiar with financial KPIs and how to apply financial ratios to the raw data, they’ll find it much easier to track the performance of your business or department. This course will explain how some of the most important financial KPIs are calculated, and what the results can tell your teams about the business’s profitability, solvency, efficiency, and valuation.
