Understanding Financial Statements
Every company’s finance function keeps detailed records of the daily transactions involved in the
running the organization. Periodically, they create reports that allow management, stakeholders and
regulating authorities to have insight into the financial health of the organization. As a manager, you
need to understand both the metrics that are reported in income statement, balance sheets, and cash flow statements, and how they relate to each other. You also need to understand how comparing numbers across your company, the industry, and from year to year, can help you assess the overall financial performance of the firm.
The in-depth review of sample case studies in this course will provide you with the tools you need to
examine your company’s reports. As you make budgeting and investment decisions, your knowledge
of how vital financial markers indicate relative health in the organization will help drive initiatives to
meet your company’s financial goals.
