About the course

The monthly reporting process is crucial for providing quality information to aid organisational decision-making. If taken for granted there is a real risk of missing opportunities, and key warning signs.

Practical issues like IT systems, resource constraints, and organisational culture are key, but you also need to focus on good practice and continual improvement. Integrating financial and non-financial information is increasingly necessary, as is, with so much data available, striking a balance to avoid information overload.

Discover how to create timely, relevant, reliable, and understandable monthly reports that meet user needs can significantly increase the chances of business success.
