Finance for Non-Finance Managers - Richfield

Finance for Non-Finance Managers

and a Reset for Financial Managers Program


Finance is a core function across all industries, and management positions increasingly require at least a foundational grasp of the role and importance of the finance function. In order for companies to achieve their productivity targets and maintain their competitive edge, modern managers need the necessary tools to understand and leverage financial data when making operational decisions. A silo mentality is no longer a tenable option, and understanding of finance cannot realistically be confined to a single department or team.
