WHOLE BUSINESS THINKING - EXECUTIVE MANAGEMENT addresses the needs of corporate decision makers, executives, managers, entrepreneurs and business owners who seek to understand and improve their company’s financial performance. EM-WBT introduces powerful concepts to help business people understand the past, identify and analyze alternatives, plan the future, execute their plans and evaluate performance.
WBT-EM demystifies complex financial concepts by explaining them in plain, easy to understand language. Readers will learn how to link past financial performance to future financial goals; how to connect decisions and actions, called “strategies” (performance indicators), to their financial consequences and how to link the language of finance with the language of operations. WBT-EM provides insight to help management analyze the details, synthesize the whole, make better business decisions and manage more efficiently and effectively.
