Celemi Apples & Oranges brings Business Acumen to life through its simple, profound model of a company – A&O Inc. After experiencing how value circulates through this company, participants may never look at Business Finance the same way again.
Participants form the incoming management team of A & O Inc. The established company is facing some tough challenges. The company is losing market share and there are increasing demands from suppliers and Customers. A & O Inc. needs a new, disciplined financial strategy. The participants in teams have to make that change happen.
Participants from all functions and with varying levels of experience, hone their Business Acumen, as they learn how to monitor cash flow, make resource utilization improvements, and measure results on the balance sheet and income statement. Acquiring basics of Financial Literacy, participants will :
- Read and interpret financial statements.
- Identify critical elements affecting profitability.
- Analyze financial ratios and key performance indicators, and make priorities accordingly.
- Choose a strategy, implement it and measure the outcomes.
- Explore the cause-and-effect relationship that govern a company’s financial statements.
- People will develop an intrinsic sense of Financial Management that will govern their future decisions back on the job.
