Course description

Financial Analysis and Management

Being able to make appropriate choices during procurement projects based on financial data and making financial decisions that affect the supply chains are critical skills for the procurement professional.

This course will give you an understanding of the role of accounting and finance in management and business. It introduces the frameworks for financial accounting, managerial accounting, and corporate finance, and provides an understanding of the information provided by accounting and finance to support decision making by procurement and supply managers and organisation leaders.

As part of this course, you will have access to pre and post-work activities online to help you prepare and reflect on your training. You’ll learn how to lead on decisions that use financial data such as budgeting for procurement projects, supplier selection, investment opportunities, and assess commodity and currency fluctuations. This course uses several practical exercises and prior to the course delegates will be provided with appropriate pre-reading and preparation work to help them get the best out of the 2 days of virtual learning.
