This workshop helps participants understand how to use accounting and finance in strategic and operational decisions.

The workshop avoids the traditional ways of teaching accounting to avoid confusion and focuses on understanding accounting information and the bookkeeping process in simple and clear terms.

Participants should be able to look at selected accounting information and know what they could do with it – or what someone else may do with it.
