the truth

Finance is hell!

  • The most boring hour of the month? Discussing the financials in the management team meeting every month……
  • Entire booklets full of numbers, no information at all!
  • If I apply my common knowledge to the financial tasks we get, it makes absolutely no sense!
  • OPEX, CAPEX, EBIT, EBITDA, Profit, Revenue, Margin, a thousand different words and in every company I have worked they had a different meaning!
  • The financial side only looks at risks and calculates everything until it is dead.
  • Funding is never available for my ideas. Making proposals and not receiving the approval for an obviously perfect project.

Finance is a structured concept in a special language. This e-learning will enable you to use finance to your advantage!

This e-learning is based on decades of controlling experience and training thousands of professionals

    • The value cycle explains and structures the three financial overviews that exist: the profit and loss statement, the balance sheet and the cash flow statement.
    • Not only the overviews but also their goals, what do financials strive for?
    • Why are professional goals opposite to personal financial goals?
    • How can you handle all financial overviews after just learning three?
    • Analysing financial overviews to generate knowledge and decide on actions to improve!
    • Working on proven examples to see the impact of an action.
    • Fun?? Yes finance can be fun! This e-learning is not only hard work. There are anecdotes, examples of a pie and a party and even some jokes!
