When an organization fails, it is usually due to several factors. These problems often result from a number of undetected, poor practices that infect and grow throughout the entire organization. They can include a lack of understanding of costs, poor asset allocation, systems that support the status quo, failure to identify risk, tunnel vision by management, and so on. Often, management will repeat poor practices across the enterprise. For example, do you think a so-called "budgeting crisis” is normally due to the budget, or actually hidden, existing problems that were uncovered due to the budgeting process? This course demonstrates the use of practices, techniques, and analytical tools specifically designed to assist CPAs and other financial professionals in adding value to their company. These areas include decision-making, cost and capacity management, selected accounting practices, understanding business cycles, managing continuous improvements, cash management, valuation techniques, and risk management. Examples of actions by both successful and failed organizations are used throughout the session.
