In challenging times, the approach to Finance is even more important than before, with the flatter management structures that operate within business today it is important both for short term success and longer term promotion that operational and even first line managers work in a strategic manner.
There are increasing pressures to implement effective systems, policies and procedures that deliver results and excellent services. At its simplest level thought needs to be given to forward planning, team development and staff succession planning. All members of an organisation should have key elements of knowledge in finance in order to make the right decisions.
Whilst more advanced financial planning may include cascading business development targets to team members and linking these to appraisals and performance reviews to financial decision making and incentivisation of key personnel.
This workshop explores the typical roles and responsibilities of operational and first line managers and considers how, where and when a more strategic financial and forward thinking management style delivers improved team and personal performance across the short, medium and longer terms.
In doing so the workshop also helps to prepare participants for, and increase their chances of internal promotion and progression.
This intensive programme designed for all levels novice or operational and first line managers, through senior management who want a refresher in finance, or management who have responsibility for team performance and are looking to adopt a more strategic and financial based style to decision making.
This orkshop is likely to be of special interest to managers, experienced or first time that are non-financial based in their management approach. The workshop may also be of interest to experienced managers, trainers and staff development professionals who are tasked with training, mentoring and/or supporting operational and non-strategic managers in progressing to more senior roles.
