Financial Performance Workshop

Equip all team members to understand key financial performance drivers and simulate future performance using your organisation’s data

Overview

All members of a leadership team make decisions that impact the financial performance of an organisation.  Yet not all members of an executive leadership team are as comfortable with financial data as the CEO and CFO.

 

The ISL Financial Performance Workshop uses your financial data to demystify key financial concepts and then embeds the understanding of these financial concepts through simulating future financial performance resulting from changes to key financial performance drivers.

 

In this way, each team member understands their impact on the financial performance of the organisation and is better equipped to make financial decisions collectively.  The financial model developed is available for use by the client for a period of 12 months after the workshop and can thereafter be updated.
