Focus and Features

With the numerous challenges Companies’ are facing right now to ensure that its Vision – Mission statements are attained and the increasing pressure in remaining to be a globally competitive organization in the Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous (VUCA) environment, management has sought to develop metrics that are more aligned to its Strategic, Operational, Financial and Compliance objectives.  These measures are being undertaken to ensure that Management and Employees performance are congruent with the Company’s objectives.  The shift in focus from the traditional performance metric of maximizing shareholder value (financial) to non-financial measures (e.g., Customer-centric, Streamlined Internal Business Processes and developing a culture for Learning and Growth, among others) has led to the auditors to transition from the traditional process-based reviews to Risk-Based audits thereby focusing on areas where management deems important in the achievement of its Corporate Objectives.  Similarly, internal auditors’ skills were also aligned with management requirements.  In this regard, certain skills such as understanding and analyzing financial statements have been deprioritized. 

This course was designed to re-introduce the concepts needed to provide a systematic and methodical approach in conducting Financial Statements Analysis.
