After working with many large companies and seeing the same thing, we wanted to create a solution. These organizations promoted many sales or operations personnel to division mangers. Then they were now responsible for managing the financial statements. Some of them have never seen a financial statement. In addition, most had never managed a department financially.
You may also be a business owner and have grown your business; you need better data to make decisions.
Or you may have taken a role that required honing in your accounting and financial skills...
If you or your employees are in this position, then you are not alone.
It is because of these reasons that we developed the From Operations to P&L Leader Workshop. The From Operations to P&L Leader Workshop is your one-stop training and coaching program.
What is the From Operations to P&L Leader Workshop?
As a P&L leader, you are expected to know everything about your P&L. Yet, it is not fair to expect you to know it all. We created this workshop based on our own experience. Over the past 25+ years, our team has worked as executives and P&L leaders. We have also worked with clients that experience similar challenges. Large, small, publicly trades, or private companies... We have done it! The From Operations to P&L Leader Workshop is designed for employees without any accounting/financial background that are now managing the financial statements and profitability.
The workshop is held across 3 sections. The first section covers understanding accounting basics. Then we go in depth about what P&L leaders need to know about accounting and financial statement basics. In the third section, we cover CAPEX, ROI, ROC, IRR, valuation, and revenue recognition. Finally, we show you how to budget successfully using our budgeting process.
