ITIL4: The wait is finally over...

The ITIL framework is changing. The last major update, ITILv3, was way back in 2007 (OK, there was the 2011 revision, but adding a couple of processes, removing a couple and tidying up the books isn't exactly a MAJOR revision). A lot has changed in the workplace and technology since then, so the update was highly anticipated. ITIL4 promises to focus on making business and IT functions work...

Finance for Non-Financial Managers

Finance is the art of passing currency from hand to hand, until it finally disappears.

Let's face it, analysing numbers and doing maths might not be your idea of a great night out (otherwise you'd already probably be an accountant) but every manager needs to have a basic grip of figures. Budgets need to be set and managed, cash flows produced and monitored, business cases justified and costs controlled. Understanding finances is not only essential to the day to day running of your team or department, but can greatly aid you in making decisions; as well as becoming more efficient and productive.

This course is delivered using a highly engaging business simulation to demonstrate the impact of day to day decisions on the profitability and financial position of the organisation.

We discussed how to identify sensible questions he could ask and possible questions that they might ask and how he might answer those.
