Description
It might not be their favorite part of the job, but every business owner, manager, and team leader needs to monitor the financial performance of their business or department. Immediate assessments can be made using Key Performance Indicators (or KPIs). A financial KPI is a measurable value that provides an insight into a business’s finances with regard to sales, expenses, profit, cash flow, or any other metric.

This course will explain how some of the most important financial KPIs are calculated, and what the results can tell you about the business’s profitability, solvency, efficiency, and valuation.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

• Demonstrate the equations for some common financial KPIs
• Measure business performance by using financial KPIs
• Evaluate your corporate financial statements using financial KPIs
