Kevin Cope, the author of Seeing the Big Picture has written an easy to read but sufficiently detailed guide for anyone to develop a much better understanding of any company.
According to Mr. Cope, there are five drivers that will allow you to see the big picture of any company. These drivers are: Assets, Profits, Growth, People and Cash. They are inter-connected, each driver influences all the others. If you understand these drivers, you will have a much better understanding of how the company works, how each employee/department contributes toward the overall goal of the company. By understanding the drivers, you can know when one is lagging and have a good idea about where to start looking for solutions.
The book is divided into two parts. Part one focuses on a detail discussion of each of the key drivers of any business. Part two focuses on explaining what goes into the financial statements of any business and how to read and understand the financial statements.
Mr. Cope explains the concepts and then uses a fictional company, Austin's Cycle Shop to illustrate the concepts.Read more ›
